Mazel Case Study: Pittsburgh International Airport

Finding the right audience:

The Delta Paris Spring Campaign was designed to reach M25-49 (a demo established through meetings with Delta Airlines) with A25-54 as the secondary demo. In addition, the focus of the campaign was to target upscale, business travelers through high profile media outlets.

The innovative marketing campaign:

Pittsburgh’s global ties play an important role in the region’s economy. That is why regional partners such as The Pittsburgh Post Gazette, WDVE Radio, KDKA radio, Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, Youngstown Vindicator, WKBN Radio, Cleveland Plain Dealer, and ESPN Radio in Cleveland planned to make a significant impact in conjunction with the Delta Paris advertising campaign.

Through market research, market segmentation and analysis, as well as strategic planning, the campaign ran from February 6-May 27, 2012. Utilizing Media Audit, Marshall Marketing, and Arbitron research, this comprehensive campaign was specifically designed to increase the market of air travelers and stimulate essential traffic out of neighboring communities.


After a successful kickoff of non-stop flights originating in our from Pittsburgh to Paris in 2012, Delta Airlines continued it’s partnership with Pittsburgh International for the last 3 years as well as expanded daily service during peak summer travels months June 15 through October 24.
