United Debuts ‘It’s Time to Fly’ Campaign Around the World

CHICAGO, Sept. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Beginning this month, United Airlines debuts its award-winning animated brand campaign, “It’s Time to Fly(SM),” around the world. The campaign celebrates the spirit of the frequent business traveler by creating a series of engaging television commercials that show the emotional connection between United and its loyal customers.

“Our ‘It’s Time to Fly’ campaign demonstrates to our customers worldwide that United understands the needs of frequent business travelers better than any other airline,” said Dennis Cary, United’s senior vice president- Marketing. “Expanding our campaign globally enables us to strengthen United’s presence in important international cities and boost our international revenue.”

The award-winning campaign, “It’s Time to Fly,” was created by the advertising agency Fallon Worldwide in Minneapolis and shows the important role that travel plays in the lives of United’s loyal customers. Each TV commercial is told with little or no dialogue and set to George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue,” United’s theme song.

The television ad campaign is set to air in the following international markets on network and cable programming:

— In Europe, the commercials “Flush” and “Sling Shot” illustrate to
European consumers that United offers customers traveling from Europe a
variety of flight connections to major cities in the United States. In
“Flush,” a business traveler finds a creative way to get to a small
city in Wyoming. In “Sling Shot,” a passenger is catapulted to his
connecting flight in Florida when he uses a competitor airline that
cannot get him to his final destination.

— In Asia, the commercial “Signature” illustrates to Asian customers that
United understands the value of face-to-face communications when doing
business. The spot features a businessman in Asia who needs a contract
signed by his client in the United States. The man decides to get on a
United flight to meet with his client in person, and gets the contract
signed.

— In Latin America, the commercial “Spoiled” illustrates to Latin
consumers that United offers premium service to its customers who
prefer traveling in luxury. The spot features a passenger seated in
United First(R) enjoying the service he is provided as he requests a
beverage, a pillow and blanket by simply raising his index finger in
the air. When the man arrives home he attempts the same gesture with
his wife, only to have a pillow thrown at him.
