World Routes flies in to Adelaide

Adelaide has won the right to host World Routes 2019, the largest conference in the aviation industry.  It will be the first time the event has been held in Australia.
World Routes will bring more than 3,000 delegates from major airlines, airports, tourism and aviation businesses from around the world to meet in Adelaide for the three-day conference to discuss new air services.  The event moves to a different location annually to showcase different destinations to the airline industry.

The South Australian capital hosted the highly successful Routes Asia conference in 2010 with a number of airlines having instigated direct flight into Adelaide since that event including Qatar, Emirates and China Southern which commences direct flights in December.
Adelaide boasts Australia's fastest growing capital city airport. Redeveloped in 2005 at a cost of A$260million, a further A$1 billion is currently being spent on projects to further expand its capacity with an expected 3% annual growth in aircraft movements over the next 20 years.
'Adelaide being named host city for World Routes 2019 presents a fantastic opportunity to showcase our offering for business events and tourism across the city and state,' says Damien Kitto, CEO Adelaide Convention Bureau.
 'Having hosted Routes Asia 2010 conference and seeing the airline partnerships that have come to fruition since then highlights the enormity of hosting this event.  The Adelaide Convention Bureau was proud to be part of Team Australia’s successful bid for World Routes 2019 with the win reinforcing the capabilities of Adelaide in hosting large global business events.'
