What is Route Exchange?

Looking for a new route? Need intelligence on a particular airport? Require a secure platform to request proposals?

Route Exchange is the online platform for air service development. Airports and airlines use the platform to exchange data and information regarding potential new routes. It is used by thousands of airline network planners to enhance their business decisions on the development of their networks, year round.
