'Virgin experience' on Virgin Atlantic

MUMBAI: Virgin Atlantic has introduced a new, exciting and funky radio spot to woo customers. The lively spot is being aired on Radio City reiterating the fun experience on board Virgin Atlantic upper class.



The entire campaign would run for a period of 30 days with 40 second spots running three times a day. Praise for the subtle and brilliant interpretation of the virgin message goes to the creative team of McCann Erickson.

According to Virgin Atlantic Airways marketing manager Neha Lidder Ganju, "Virgin is a Fun and Quirky brand! We have a lot of fun with the brand though we are very serious where our customer brand experience is concerned. Value for money, a seamless air journey, continued product innovation and world-class service are the benchmarks in our business. We are always looking at ways to excite our customers and that has helped us create that niche for ourselves. The radio spot truly conveys what we are best at - delighting our customers."

McCann Erickson creative group head Gautam Mehta said, "Working for a brand like Virgin is always challenging yet great fun. The Radio Spot essentially reflects the Virgin spirit and best describes the comforts of flying Upper Class with Virgin Atlantic"

The radio spot aptly describes the virgin experience wherein the airhostess's politely urges passengers to go ashore but passengers blissfully ignore her pleas, encapsulating crisply the fun experience on-board Virgin Atlantic.
