A sample of 4,516 travellers from Beijing and Shanghai took part in a survey which was conducted in collaboration with the JGM-Research firm in Paris to measure the impact of inflight advertising (press, TV and digital) on the Chinese traveller. A sample of 4,516 travellers from Beijing and Shanghai took part in a survey which was conducted in collaboration with the JGM-Research firm in Paris to measure the impact of inflight advertising (press, TV and digital) on the Chinese traveller.

The study revealed that 39% have purchased the product after seeing it inflight, 64.8% visit a duty free store to actually see the product, 47.5% purchased the product in a different location other than the duty free zone, 54.8% searched for information after seeing the product in ads and 63.7% told their friends.

This survey demonstrates the impact of "Inflight" ads. Indeed, the particular attention paid by the traveller to a brand message is due to an environment where the target has a very high level of responsiveness compared to traditional media consultation and provides a high level of memorization among consumers. For the record, it was also noted that 30% of travellers kept the magazine on arrival.

Also very interesting observation on digital, 81% of the target states they watch TV on board, 69.9% said they follow the flight map on screen and 57% recall commercials aired during the journey.

The most desired products are wines and spirits, perfumes, jewellery, watches and fashion.

It was also noted that 72% of Chinese travellers will consume luxury items and they reserve 80% of their budget for this type of expenditure according to TNS 2012.

Finally, according to IATA, 80 million Chinese travelled in 2012 and it is expected an increase of 25% in 2015, 100 million.

The Chinese traveller is a target that should not be overlooked and a strong buying power that can be maximized through "Inflight" advertising.
