Route Exchange Airline Briefings

Route Exchange Airline Briefings are exclusively open to attending airport and tourism authority delegates. Delivered by senior network planners and scheduled over two meeting slots, these briefings provide delegates with an opportunity to gain an insight into their target & current airline partners’ business.

Held in private theatres on the show floor, Route Exchange Airline Briefings are the only place to further develop your understanding of the route planning function of airlines, hear a valuable update on the opportunities the airline feels are out there and gain an understanding of how decision makers at airlines see the market place. A Question & Answer session follows each presentation.
