Paris, January 30th, 2024 – Outdoor advertising company JCDecaux SE (Euronext Paris: DEC) announces that JCDecaux China has won the exclusive advertising contract with Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport, following a tender.

This new contract, effective on February 1st, 2024, extends JCDecaux’s footprint in Chinese airports ensuring a strong presence in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, one of the most dynamic regions in the world, which counts more than 86 million inhabitants.

Shenzhen is the country’s first special economic zone created in 1979. It is a young & dynamic city, with the average age of residents around 32.5 years in 2020, below the national average of around 39 years. Shenzhen is now the city of high tech, a vibrant city with more than 17.5 million inhabitants; a major financial and industrial center; home to numerous well-known Chinese international companies, including Tencent Holdings and BYD.

Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport is a beautiful large modern airport, designed by the Italian architect Massimiliano Fuksas. Opened to traffic in October 1991, it became an international airport in May 1993, and developed into China’s fourth largest airport since 1996 with nearly 53 million passengers in 2023, including 51 million domestic passengers.

JCDecaux operates Hong-Kong airport in China since its opening in 1998 and entered Mainland in 2005, with the Shanghai Airport advertising concession, both Hongqiao & Pudong, and since then operates in Beijing Capital, Beijing Daxing, Chengdu Shuangliu, Chengdu Tianfu, Chongqing Jiangbei and Macau airports. The strength of our advertising network in China’s airports allows us to offer Chinese and International brands the best communication solutions.
