About Routes
Routes events are unique forums dedicated to the development of air services, bringing together airlines, airports and destinations to meet, plan, discuss and negotiate new and existing flights.

Five ‘regional’ route development forums are held between February and July in the Americas, Asia, Europe, Africa/Middle East and Silk Road/Russian Commonwealth, and the flagship World Routes event takes place in September.

The events revolve around pre-scheduled meetings and an exhibition and conference which are delivered in partnership with host stakeholders. Hosts tend to be a collaboration between airports, tourism authorities and investment partners (the bidding process takes place two to three years before the event takes place).

Attendance at Routes events for press delegates with editorial responsibility is free of charge. Please get in touch to register.

Routes is part of the Aviation Week Network division of Informa plc.
