Dammam Airports Company

Raising Standards in Aviation

Context

As the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia focuses on Saudi Vision 2030 as a means to drive economic development and social advancement, GACA and Saudi Arabian Airports have an instrumental role in achieving the plan’s goals by enhancing the connectivity of the Nation.

As a result of the directive of Vision 2030, GACA is in the process of refreshing and clarifying its business strategy including the privatisation of its network of airports.

Ambition

In line with this, and based on its current corporate brand values, the initial task at hand was to assess, plan and deliver a clear, relevant and differentiated brand and campaign strategy to promote Dammam International Airport.

The airport has the ambition to be a progressive driver of economic development and symbol of national pride and the rebrand will help enable this by creating clarity, consistency and leadership.

Action

We developed an entirely new brand visual and verbal identity system based on the airport’s existing brand values of professional, dependable and forward-looking. Addressing touchpoints across the airport infrastructure we created an identity that aims to feel approachable, dynamic and timeless and allows for the airport identity, KFIA, to sit comfortably within the parent company brand, DACO.

Results

The brand film we prepared to herald the launch of the DACO brand was premiered in the Summer of 2017. As the new look is rolled-out we continue to support DACO and KFIA to ensure the identity takes-off and reach new heights.
