Working with their agency, McCann, Turkish Airlines has also added a little gamification on top of it by turning it to a London scavenger hunt. When you find and scan the QR Code, you automatically “check-in” to that flag via the mobile site. To win a ticket to one of Turkish Airlines’ 200 destinations, all you have to do is be the one with most check-ins. Those familiar with location based tools like Foursquare would find this a breeze.
Of course, the underlying aim here is to co-relate the number of diverse countries represented at the Olympics to Turkish Airlines’ own diverse destinations. Even if a person doesn’t win a ticket, at least he or she knows Turkish Airlines flights to the particular destination on the bar code.
SimpliSlick, given how much budget key Olympic sponsors are spending to get attention!
In the mobile site , you can see the closest bus shelters, learn your check-in data and general stats. The video below shows the QR code in action at a bus stop in London.
