This Norwegian airline thinks an emoji website will help secure millennials’ money

Norwegian Airlines has launched an emoji-based web address to tout its new Copenhagen to Las Vegas route to millennials.

After registering the route with a Samoa web address, given administrators can create domains featuring emoji, the Airline pushed the new route on Instagram, according to AdWeek.

The site is registered as an airplane emoji, a slots emoji and a flying money emoji.

​The creative campaign was backed by social media to get millennials to Vegas - via a Norwegian Airlines flight.

The firm claims the campaign reached over half a million people after it was shared by a number of top influencers on Instagram.

This follows last month’s news that ‘Emoji’ is the fastest growing language in the UK.
