S7 Airlines launches «The Best of Planets» advertising campaign

S7 Airlines, a member of the oneworld global aviation alliance, is launching an integrated advertising campaign «The Best of Planets».

During the campaign the commercial will be broadcasted on federal TV channels and radio stations, the advertising material will be published online and in print and there already is the outdoor advertising in place in the largest cities of S7 Airlines flight network. The idea for this campaign was put forward by Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam agency.

«In this campaign we wanted to show our planet from a new and unexpected side, to inspire the passengers to discover and travel to explore wonderful places. Travelling is the opportunity to experience new emotions, to enjoy the beauty and feel the energy of the Earth», Tatyana Fileva, Deputy Director General of S7 Group, noted.

In the commercial the Earth is shown through the eyes of a hero who knows what is it to be far away from it — Andrei Borisenko, the Russian pilot‑cosmonaut, the Hero of Russia. He has spent more than 164 days far from the Earth and he knows better than anyone how incredible and wonderful the world that we walk on. He has also made the voice‑over of the commercial.

«During the mission the things you miss the most are the smells of the Earth, the feelings of rain, wet weather, big city sounds. But the most powerful feeling is when the hatch of the capsule is open and you filled with smell of the ground. When you haven’t breathed this air for half a year you start to forget it. Those are very strong feelings», Andrei Borisenko, a pilot‑cosmonaut, Hero of Russia, says.

The emotional message of the cosmonaut is accompanied by images created by a young and progressive director AG Rojas. The commercial was shot in picturesque places of the world such as the caves of Thailand, the seaside of Croatia and the Hermitage Museum in Saint-Petersburg.

The commercial is available to watch on S7 Airlines website or on the YouTube channel of the company.
