DDFH&B is the only Dublin agency among the three left to compete in the final stages of the Aer Lingus creative review. The airline will also see presentations from London agency Krow and KesselsKramer, an independent agency with offices in Amsterdam, London and Los Angeles and already known in Ireland for its work for KBC Bank (pictured right).
Krow clients include Unilever, Fiat, Virgin Trains, Le Creuset, Fiat and DFS. Aer Lingus is no stranger to overseas agencies, having worked with VCCP London before the account moved back to Dublin and Irish International three years ago.
A decision on the review is expected by early November.
Aer Lingus is also talking to PR agencies. The account is currently handled by WHPR. An airline spokesman said no overseas-based firms were asked to pitch and the process is still in the early stages.
