The Routes business is focused entirely on aviation route development and the company's portfolio includes events, media and online businesses.
The company organises and operates world-renowned airline and airport networking events through its regional and World Route Development Forums. They are held in key markets throughout the year in Asia, Africa, Europe, the Americas and the CIS.
These events are supported by the online platform for air service development, Route Exchange. This area of the site provides airports with the ability to promote their market opportunities and acts as the airline industry's central source of market data and route development information.
Routes also has other key industry media including an online weekly newsletter, The HUB and the world air service development magazine, Routes News. Our news and analysis content is written by Richard Maslen, Editor Routesonline whilst all of our breaking route announcements come via Jim Liu who writes for our sister website Airlineroute.net.
