This year World Routes makes its debut in the USA as senior network and business development executives, senior airline and airport management, tourism ministers and travel industry specialists, aircraft manufacturers and suppliers and members of the international, national, regional and aviation press will all meet at the Las Vegas Convention Centre in the in the world's entertainment capital for the 19th World Route Development Forum.

After a turbulent year or two for the industry the event will, once again, be the place to examine air services, find out about new market developments and get up-to-speed on the up-and-coming destinations. For airlines, airports, tourism authorities and other stakeholders, World Routes is the place to learn, to negotiate, to build relationships and to help shape your business so that it has the competitive edge it needs in the coming years to grow and thrive.

A packed schedule of meetings and profile raising opportunities are the beating heart of this world leading event. The dedicated Routes team are there to ensure that World Routes works for you, making sure that the meeting opportunities, which directly affect your route networks are bigger and broader every year. 

You can keep updated on all that is happening at World Routes via the four special The HUB Daily publications which will emailed to all delegates registered on Routesonline. I look forward to meeting you all at tonight's Saturday Reception - let me tell you, you don't want to miss it!

Last year McCarran served more than 41 million passengers. “It’s a huge step,” Vassiliadis says. “And I have very big shoes to fill.”...click here for more...
