Airports review outdoor after contractor exits market

Belfast and Glasgow Prestwick airports have ended their contracts with outdoor advertising group OTT after financial difficulties at the company.

Outdoor sales for Prestwick have been handed to Airport Partners, a sister company to Adgroup, the transport advertising specialist which runs a joint venture with Titan Outdoor.
The contract is Airport Partner's first move into Scotland and is expected to generate revenues of £2.5m over five years.
Belfast International Airport, which serves five million passengers a year and could generate as much as £1m yearly in advertising revenues, is already in discussions with new contractors.
Potential new partners include Eyecorp, which recently won the concession for Manchester Airports Group, JCDecaux Airport, Clear Channel, which holds Birmingham and had run Belfast before OTT, and Belfast City airport contractor Primair Sites.
OTT won both contracts in 2005, and they were due to run for three years, but will now exit the airport business.
