DELHI INTERNATIONAL Airport Private Limited (DIAL) has awarded the licence for the advertisement locations at Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi, to Times Innovative Media Private Limited (TIMPL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Entertainment Network (India) Limited (ENIL) which operates FM radio broadcasting stations under the brand Radio Mirchi. According to analysts, Delhi airport is expected to emerge as India’s largest airport platform with passenger traffic of approximately 22 million by 2009.

The licence involves designing, setting up, development and maintenance of the advertisement locations for three years, and covers approximately 150 display sites inside the terminal buildings, approach roads, hoardings around terminals & advertising options inside the terminal buildings & aerobridges.

“We are happy to associate with TIMPL for advertising at Delhi airport. As part of country’s leading media house, Times Innovative Media brings with it understanding and rich experience in advertising. We are sure it will help us bring global advertising standards to India. The association will synergise with DIAL’s vision of creating a world-class airport at Delhi,” DIAL’s managing director Srinivas Bommidala said after the award was announced.

“We are delighted to win the licence for the advertising locations at Indira Gandhi International Airport. This is the first advertising rights licence to be awarded after the privatisation of the Delhi airport and was keenly bid by several out-of-home media players including global players,” said TIMPL director A P Parigi. “Delhi is a very important market for us and winning this contract is a definitive step in the direction that we are heading,” he added.
