Requests For Proposals (RFP’s)

Route Exchange - the only online platform facilitating air service development.

Route Exchange allows airlines to issue Request For Proposals (RFP) directly to a target airport market, who are then able to respond to this request for new air service.

Route Exchange Airport members are able to have exclusive access to airline opportunities that they may not have been aware of, whilst being able to respond understanding the data requirements of the specific airline issuing the RFP. These comprehensive documents are available to the airports as part of their Route Exchange membership

For airlines, the RFP process is a cost and time efficient way of requesting comparable data from key airports in your target region, helping the analysis already in place.
