Manama, Sept. 12 (BNA): Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) will showcase Bahrain International Airport’s (BIA) competitiveness as a regional aviation hub and promote the Kingdom as a tourism destination, alongside the Bahrain Economic Development Board and the Bahrain Tourism and Exhibition Authority, at one of the aviation industry’s biggest global events.
The 24th World Route Development Forum, taking place in Guangdong Province, China from 15 to 18 September, will bring together airlines, airport operators, tourism authorities, government bodies, and other relevant stakeholders to explore potential partnerships. More than 3,000 delegates from 110 countries are expected to attend the event, which provides a platform for route development professionals to discuss, develop, and plan network strategy.
The event will include face-to-face meetings, an exhibition, and a conference featuring presentations and panel discussions with industry experts, centred on key air service development issues currently affecting the route development community.
BAC Chief Commercial Officer, Ayman Zainal, said: "World Routes is one of the most important events for BAC and we are always keen to participate. It provides an excellent opportunity for us to meet with international airlines and airport management companies. The forum is an ideal platform to showcase the numerous advantages of operating out of BIA as well as the improvements being made to its infrastructure, facilities, and services through the Airport Modernisation Programme. BAC and its partners are working to develop new routes and cargo operations that will serve the needs of businesses and passengers within BIA’s facilities. This event is a great opportunity for us to meet with senior route decision makers and network planners and gain valuable insight that brings us closer to our goals."
