Clear Channel Airports, a subsidiary of New York City-based billboard and signage giant Clear Channel Outdoor, announces it has been awarded with a five-year contract extension with city-owned Long Beach Airport.
Clear Channel Airports has partnered with the airport since 2005. Long Beach Airport hosts five major airlines and offers nonstop service to 16 destinations, including the most recently announced destination, Honolulu. In addition to its historic 1941 Streamline Moderne terminal, the airport also opened a new passenger concourse in 2012, for which it has won awards.
Last year Conde Nast Traveler voted LGB the third best airport in the U.S. Approximately 3.8 million travelers are expected to pass through the airport in 2018.
“Long Beach takes pride in the fact that our beautiful waterfront city attracts approximately 6 million visitors each year,” says Jess Romo, Long Beach airport director. “LGB is the premiere gateway to this region, and we are optimistic that the airport’s partnership with Clear Channel Airports will continue to be successful.”
Along with the contract extension comes a new advertising campaign, which will be launched this summer.
