20 Outstanding Airplane Ads You Need to See

In today’s world, advertising is everywhere: on billboards, banners, bus stops, even buses — there’s always someone trying to sell you whitening toothpaste, engine oil or luxury-line clothes that make you look like a superstar. After a while, we develop the ability to filter out the white noise. So advertisers have to take things up a notch.

We see this in creative airplane ads. Airplane ads compel you to travel, and are aimed at consumers who have cash to spend (or don’t have it but don’t mind spending it) and who are increasingly difficult to influence via traditional media like television and newspapers.

These ads play with our emotions, our need and desire to travel, to see the huge, amazing, beautiful and mother-nature-given world. Some of these ads make you laugh, some make you want to pack up and go, others make you look twice, but they are all set to grab your attention and perhaps book a ticket out of the country!
