“While other Airports may pay for this type of service, the arrangement that our team has negotiated with Clear Channel to air ClearVision at MSY will cost us nothing. In fact, it actually will increase our non-airline revenues which should help decrease airline costs thus enabling airlines to bring more seats to New Orleans,” said Iftikhar Ahmad, Armstrong International Airport Director of Aviation.
ClearVision was created through a partnership between Clear Channel Airports and connectiVISION Digital Networks, a leading digital media company. Together, these companies are building momentum among U.S. airports and transforming in-airport advertising.
“ClearVision helps airports bring more modern entertainment to travelers by offering engaging and entertaining programming that people know and want," said David Tetreault, chief operating officer at ClearVision/connectiVISION TV Networks. "We are excited to launch ClearVision with Louis Armstrong International Airport just in time for the biggest advertising event of the year. I can think of no better way to debut the service and bring attention to this valuable new platform for advertisers. We look forward to working with our content partners and airports around the country to enhance the in-airport experience for passengers while also creating new business.”
"My enthusiasm for the potential of the new ClearVision TV Network is strongly supported in the interest we’ve seen among airports and the shear size of our initial daily, weekly, monthly and annual audience,” said Henry Mauriss, CEO of ClearVision/connectiVISION TV Networks. “We will soon be announcing a second ClearVision installation at another international airport and with just two important airports initially, we will kick off this venture with more than 50,000 daily passengers, 1.5 million monthly passengers, and 18 million annual passengers, which translates to more than 60 million annual impressions. The prestige and heft of our highly affluent audience points to a compelling advertising platform as ClearVision scales in 2013.”
