INDIA/MAURITIUS. Times OOH, the Indian outdoor advertising company, has acquired the sole media rights at Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport in Mauritius.

The company also owns advertising rights at India’s two largest airports – Delhi Indira Gandhi International and Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International. The new contract is for ten years.

The advertising specialist said that it plans a mix of around 140 advertising sites at the airport, including 42 digital screens, glass wraps, wall wraps and promotional zones.

Times OOH President Sharath Chandra said: “Mauritius Airport boasts of about 3.8 million annual footfalls out of which, interestingly, 95% are international passengers, making this acquisition of tremendous strategic importance.”

FOONOTE: The Moodie Davitt Report will next month launch a new monthly e-Zine, Sight Lines – The Amazing World of Airport Advertising, in which we profile advertising and communication initiatives across the fantastic crossroads of humanity that world airports represent. Each issue will build to a very special culmination in 2019. Details to follow next month.
