Turkish Airlines recognised for advertising excellence

Posted 18 November 2016 · Add Comment

Turkish Airlines has won Gold in the respected Epica Awards for its Batman v Superman advertising campaign.

In the blockbuster, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the airline’s Boeing 777 aircraft made a cameo – claiming Turkish Airlines was flying to the movie’s imaginary cities; Gotham City and Metropolis.

The purpose of the campaign was to show Turkish Airlines’ commitment to unveiling an innovative movie-themed experience that gave fans around the world the chance to explore the iconic world of two of our favourite superheroes. This included the possibility for travellers to “book” flights to the airline’s two “new” locations.

Turkish Airlines was awarded in the Product & Brand Integration category, which recognised “operations promoting branded products or services via appearances in pre-existing films, television shows or other media, enabling brands to gain or reinforce status from the context in which they are placed”.

The campaign achieved 125 million earned media impressions, while the adverts on YouTube reached a view count of over 30 million.

“We are proud of this award as it shows Turkish Airlines’ commitment in offering new, innovative and unexpected experiences for its passengers and followers worldwide.” said Ahmet Olmuştur, Turkish Airlines' chief marketing officer.
