The take off and landing chewing gum
As all travelers know, take-off and landing can sometimes cause discomfort, as the cabin pressure can clog passengers’ ears. The chewing action helps balancing this internal ear pressure and ease things. To make the travel experience more enjoyable, Air France decided to take care of its customers’ ears.
With the help of its agency BETC, the airline has created its own French chewing gum “La Gomme à Mâcher” to offer to its passengers on board and in the business lounge. Two original flavours are available: pistachio-macaroon and crème brûlée. The gum is made in France and 100% natural.
This new product will be available on specific flights and on offer at various Air France lounges at Paris-charles de Gaulle. It will also be be on sale on Air France Shopping and at Colette in Paris.
This unexpected brand extension is sure to offer a distinct value to customers while leveraging the brand’s image, it is also an opportunity to produce sales thanks to the chewing gum’s distinctive taste and the creative appeal of the product.
