World Routes

Under way at present (20-23 September) in Chicago is the 20th World Route Development Forum, a massive international get together to discuss the future of the world’s air service industry. 

At the last count attendance was expected to touch 3,000 experts representing around 300 airlines, 800 airports and 200 tourism authorities from every corner of the globe.

Speakers were expected to include Sir Tim Clark, President & CEO of Emirates; Scott Kirby, President of American Airlines; Rosemarie Andolino and Augustin de Romanet, Chairman & CEO, Aéroports de Paris.

Katie Bland, Director Routes at UBM Live, the shows’ promoters said:  “It is fantastic for World Routes to be back in the US after the immense success of Las Vegas 2013, before we bring the event to South Africa and China in the coming years. Chicago is one of the great cities of the world and one of the most important global aviation hubs. Over the next few days, the future of air services across the globe will be shaped in more than 10,000 Face-to-Face meetings and two high-profile conferences. Since air services are the lifelines of the modern economy, the decisions taken at World Routes have a significant impact on the economic development of cities, regions and increasingly even countries.” www.routesonline.com
