From September 15-18, 2018, Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) will be shedding light on Bahrain International Airport’s (BIA) competitiveness as a regional aviation hub at World Routes 2018, while also promoting Bahrain as a tourism destination.
Joining BAC will be the Bahrain Economic Development Board and the Bahrain Tourism and Exhibition Authority.
The event will unite airlines, airport operators, tourism authorities, government bodies and other relevant stakeholders to explore potential partnerships. Over 3,000 delegates from 110 countries are set to attend, who will take part in face-to-face meetings, an exhibition and a conference featuring presentations and panel discussions with aviation experts.
Chief commercial officer, BAC, Ayman Zainal commented on the event’s significance: “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.”
HE continued: “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.”
