The Objective

The Objective

Budapest Airport has been dynamically developing and expanding its piers, giving passengers a comfortable stay and the highest quality services. Although, they had a unique challenge of breaking the stigma of the silent airport. That is why Budapest airport cooperated with Httpool by Aleph to bring Spotify’s playlists to the visitors and create an enticing travel experience.

The project started in June 2022, with Budapest launching a branded Spotify playlist bringing engagement and music to the passengers flying in and from Budapest. Since the campaign began, our client has grown the number of playlists. Budapest Airport created 11 sub-playlists like "Flying home for Christmas, a LOT to enjoy in NYC, Surfin' in Budapest.
