World Routes and IATA

Now established over 20 years World Routes gathers airlines, airports and destinations under one roof.

This year’s event in Milan from 10-12 October comes about just one week after the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Annual General Meeting and World Air Transport Summit in Boston (USA).  With the current United States entry restrictions a cloud hovers over the airline get together.

The IATA conference is a gathering of airline bosses and Routes, whilst of the highest calibre, engages more at practical levels and airport entry discussions.  Will more CEOs be seen at Milan with the Italian entry requirements less restrictive?  Will non-IATA members be present?  

Over 185 carriers are expected to attend the event and engage in conversations with airports and destinations during both in-person and virtual meetings, which will support the recovery of global air connectivity.

“Our ability to consistently unite decision-makers from the route development community, means Routes continues to influence the world’s air services; with over 3,500 new air services connected to meetings at Routes events in the last three years alone,” says Steven Small, Brand Director for Routes. “The number of airlines and the seniority of the airline delegates confirmed to attend World Routes in Milan demonstrates the importance of in-person meetings to help overcome the impact of this pandemic.”
