The Idea

From adding new airlines and routes to new one-of-a-kind dining options and an overhauled facade - there’s never been a better passenger experience at CLE. Today marks a new dawn for the airport. More flights, historic low fares and a record high volume of passengers give us something to celebrate - and a reason to fly. It’s time to reconnect with old roommates. It’s time to see the Grand Canyon. It’s time to create memories that will last a lifetime. It’s time to Enjoy Going Places.

Connecting Social

CLE is a conduit to the world. Connecting people to people, connecting people to places - making those connections and creating memories that last a lifetime. By highlighting the stories of passengers we create an emotional connection between CLE and our travelers, resulting in increased inspiration to travel and improved perception of CLE.

We built out the campaign for social to promote more user-generated content. We've spent time interviewing passengers on their travels and highlighting these stories through our social channels. This helps hook the audience and build in the emotional tie - all while highlighting and promoting the specific destinations that CLE flies.

Website Refresh

We couldn't build out our new campaign without revamping the CLE website. is focused on the passengers we serve on a daily basis. With customer service in mind, the CLE site has up-to-date information about everything from the number of parking spaces available to the status of your flights and even the weather conditions on the tarmac.
