Jetstar Has Turned Australia’s Busiest Train Stations into Airports
Today is Jetstar’s 17th birthday. And to celebrate, Jetstar is asking commuters who catch a train, to ‘catch a plane’ instead.
In a remarkable full media takeover of two of Australia’s most prominent and iconic stations, over 50 digital screens in the station are being used to track an aircraft’s flight path, with free flight vouchers for those who can scan and catch the plane. Every available screen across Flinders Street Station (Melbourne) and Central Station (Sydney) will be working together to help passengers catch vouchers ranging from $50-$500.
Jetstar’s chief customer officer Alan McIntyre said: “We're excited to be sharing our birthday celebrations with our customers at a time when demand for leisure travel is at the strongest it’s ever been.
“There’s no doubt there’ll be lots of keen travellers at Flinders Street and Central Stations to snap up these travel vouchers to put towards their next trip.”
The activation utilises every digital oOh!media screen across both stations for 24 hours.
Neil Ackland, chief content, marketing and creative officer from oOh!media says: “When it comes to reaching people at scale and engaging Australians at key moments throughout their day, there’s simply no substitute for Out of Home media. Big, bold and technologically creative, this campaign showcases Jetstar in a unique and innovative way, and is sure to drive engagement, brand recognition and bookings. It’s been a real highlight to work with Jetstar, Thinkerbell and Wavemaker on such a fun campaign as people start flying again in greater numbers.”
Adam Ferrier, chief thinker at Thinkerbell says: “It’s been great working with Jetstar to shake up Australia’s commute and remind everyone that a relaxing holiday is only a few clicks away. Using all the station media so it’s all joined up to create a completely immersive customer experience is pretty fun.”
