Jacksonville Aviation Authority Receives Marketing and Communications Awards

Airport system places in Nationally Recognized Industry Marketing and Communications Contest

JACKSONVILLE, Oct. 20, 2011 – The Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) announced that it received three Excellence in Airport Marketing & Communications awards at this year’s  annual Airports Council International (ACI)– North America conference held in San Diego.


The JAA’s four-airport system received 2nd place in the websites category and 3rd place in the television advertising and video categories.


Now in its 20th year, the Airports Council International – North America’s Excellence in Airport Marketing & Communications contest had 175 individual entries from over 40 airport members in the U.S. and Canada.


“We’re so pleased to have placed in three categories this year,” said JAA Executive Director and CEO Steve Grossman. “Our marketing and communications team has done extensive work updating our website and television advertising. We’re very proud of their efforts.”


Last year, JAA unveiled a new branding campaign designed to build better awareness of the city’s vibrant aviation system. The branding campaign includes a new overall logo for the authority, new logos for each of its four airports, the renaming of three of the airports and new websites. JAA was created in 2001 by the Florida Legislature and has been using the same brand identity since then.
