Skyscanner shows how sexy travel search could be

SINGAPORE - A new campaign from flight search engine Skyscanner targets the Philippines, Australia and New Zealand with three videos featuring the imaginary exploits of a would-be ladies' man in various international cities.

The campaign, which the company created in-house, will run for a few weeks. Objectives include increasing awareness of the service's "search to everywhere" feature while also delivering the message that travel makes one sexy and fascinating.

The series contains three videos in which the sexiness level heats up from “basic”, to “hot” to “killer” (above) as the main character imagines his luck in love (or lack thereof) in different locations. The videos are currently running on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+. The company said one additional video will be released soon.

The campaign is also running in the company's original home country, the UK (Skyscanner has offices in Singapore and Beijing), and Skyscanner plans to launch it globally, including other Asian markets such as Indonesia, South Korea, Japan and Singapore.
