The radio campaign will be aired on selected commercial stations in two installments – the first from March until April covering the regions of London, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Newcastle, and the second in November for the London region only. Key radio stations will include; Capital FM, Metro Radio, Magic, Gold and LBC.

Similarly, the taxi advertising campaign will also be showcased in two strategic waves – one from March until June covering the regions of London, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Newcastle; the second from September through to November across the region of Greater London only.

Mr Orestis Rossides, Director of the CTO office in London, said: ‘Advertising activity during this period usually proves very effective in inspiring visitors to book their getaways early, as holidaymakers look for sun-drenched destinations to counterbalance the grey skies of a British winter. Now, with our new and improved campaign, we aim to delight the British public across the TV and radio air waves as well as taxis – all proven tools to effectively convey messages to a large audience.”
