The Week in Marketing


- BA in 'opportunity' ad.

British Airways has launched its biggest ad campaign for two years in a bid to revive flagging passenger numbers. A leisure-travel push will include nine documentary-style TV ads based on the concept of 'opportunity', highlighting rare events around the globe, such as the migration of the wildebeest in the Serengeti. A tranche of business-focused ads, meanwhile, promote face-to-face contact at events such as the Mumbai Fashion Week.

- O2 merges branches

O2 is combining its mobile contract and pay-as-you-go teams into one division, with the aim of focusing marketing activity on target segments of the customer base, rather than types of mobile packages. It is expected that 10% of O2's 235-strong marketing team will leave as a result of the changes.

- RFU hires BBH

The Rugby Football Union (RFU) has appointed Bartle Bogle Hegarty to create a campaign for November's Investec Challenge Series of international matches between England and Australia, Argentina and New Zealand. The agency won the business from Lowe London, which will remain on the RFU roster. The campaign will go live later this month. The RFU and BBH also plan to work together on an as-yet unspecified series of other advertising projects.
