Welcome to the DMD Scotland newsletter for Summer 2018
What an incredibly busy season is coming up, with the Open at Carnoustie, the spectacular Edinburgh Festivals and the massive European Championships in August.

Highland and Islands airports:
Wick and Sumburgh
An exciting new publisher opportunity: DMD has been invited to install a Media Wall in the main buildings of Wick Airport and Sumburgh Airport, Shetland.
Both Loganair and Eastern Airways fly daily to and from Wick, ferrying business and leisure passengers to Aberdeen and Edinburgh for connecting flights to London and Amsterdam Schipol – both major hubs for onward travel worldwide.
Wick is also a gateway for arriving visitors into a region offering the very best in outdoor sporting activities, from golf to mountain biking to sailing – and in particular the Assynt Mountain region, the country’s first UNESCO Geopark and a magnet for climbers from around the globe.
Sumburgh welcomed an additional 67,781 passengers last year, representing an increase of 9.3% year on year. The airport is a key gateway for the energy sector, serving the oil and gas fields off the Shetland coast.
Loganair and Flybe provide daily services between Sumburgh and Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Inverness and Kirkwall, also Bergen, Norway in summer months. While newspaper allocations are already reserved there, we can still welcome interest from magazine publishers in these two prime DMD Media Wall locations.
Summer holidays – special promotion
And finally: school’s out soon and lots of happy families will be jetting off to the sun from our DMD Media Wall fitted Scottish airports. It’s the perfect opportunity for you to place your comic or other children’s title with us – a holiday gift both restless kids and stressed-out parents will value, and a fantastic brand sampling opportunity.
