Dentsu Marcom boards SpiceJet as its creative agency
Dentsu Marcom has bagged SpiceJet's creative mandate. This win for the agency comes following a multi-agency pitch.
Speaking about the development, Sanjiv Kapoor, chief operating officer, SpiceJet said, "SpiceJet is delighted to have appointed Dentsu Marcom as its creative agency. We were impressed with their understanding of the brief and strategic approach at the pitch process. The agency will have a vital role to play in repositioning the brand thought further as we grow and enabling SpiceJet to achieve its aim of becoming a people's airline and a carrier of choice."
The airline, along with Dentsu Marcom, aims to re-define and refresh the flying experience in India by infusing it with humanity, warmth, passion, commitment and a touch of humour, with the end goal of exceeding customers' expectation and their satisfaction. The brief given to agencies during the pitch was to capture the spirit of SOCCH: Safe, On-time, Clean, Courteous and Hassle-free.
Said Rohit Ohri, executive chairman, Dentsu India and CEO, Dentsu APAC (South), "We are happy to partner brand SpiceJet on this exciting new phase of their journey in India.

The three-day offer, for which the bookings start from tomorrow, however, comes with a rider, the airline said in a release.
Are frequent fare discounts working for ailing SpiceJet, which has reported its fifth straight quarterly loss for the September quarter? The airline says these schemes are working and has even come out with details explaining exactly how. But it is tough to figure out whether the management's strong belief in frequent and deep discounts to stimulate demand is based on facts or short term euphoria.
SpiceJet's promoters, the Marans of Sun Group, may have finalised an investor for the ailling airline. A source told Firstbiz this morning that a deal, which could see an infusion of up to Rs 1500 crore in tranches into the airline, has already been agreed upon.
