Clear Channel Airports | January 18, 2023
Clear Channel Airports (CCA), the U.S.-based airports business of Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc., launched yet another cutting-edge digital media program for the highly anticipated grand opening of Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) Terminal A. The digital media makeover, created in collaboration with the PANYNJ, includes almost 6,000 square feet of the most cutting-edge premium advertising media.
Global businesses headquartered in New Jersey, such as Rutgers University, Audible, and Atlantic Health System, are the first advertisers to access this new airport media area, where they will reach millions of airport consumers using the most advanced digital and printed display technology.
Clear Channel Airports, the nation's premier airport media supplier, included this advertising space in the terminal's $2.7 billion refurbishment. The nearly one million square foot terminal offers advertising, brand collaborations, sponsorship, and experiential marketing options for brands and enterprises seeking to reach millions of flyers in the larger metro region.
This current redevelopment at EWR coincides with CCA's 12-year contract with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to renovate its prestigious airports, including LaGuardia (LGA), John F. Kennedy International (JFK), and Stewart International (SWF). The partnership, announced in October 2020, is the biggest airport sponsorship and advertising campaign in the United States.
CCA's new digital media program involves over 70 high-impact and innovative displays throughout the 33-gate terminal, including an iconic 24-foot seamless digital "umbrella" — a suspended, first-of-its-kind airport advertising screen hanging above the terminal's most enormous concourse, where not only can you view the massive installation head-on in both directions, but you can also see the advertising as you walk beneath it.
Moreover, a network of 54 ultra-high-definition LCD panels, two distinctive 42-foot curved LED soffits, and 16 dynamic digital columns illuminate the new ultramodern interior of Terminal A, providing an impactful, audience-focused advertising environment. In addition, CCA said that a 75-foot-long external head-on digital welcome display would be added to the new consolidated car rental facility (CONRAC).
