JCDecaux, the outdoor advertising giant, announced on Tuesday that its subsidiary JCDecaux Abu Dhabi has been awarded a 10-year exclusive advertising concession for the new Midfield Terminal of Abu Dhabi International Airport.

JCDecaux said it will roll out a media platform at the Midfield Terminal, including exclusive VIP networks and availing the latest generation of digital media, delivering four iconic media walls of 20 sq m to offer brands the ability to reach millions of travellers annually.

It added that it will also contribute to an enhanced passenger experience by offering relevant and contextualised content to audiences on the move.
