El Dorado International Airport, our Routes Americas 2021 host, looks forward to welcoming you to a captivating location in the heart of Colombia.
Colombia is strategically located between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, and El Dorado has a robust domestic connection with other regions as the country’s main air terminal, becoming the start of one of the most diverse tourism offers in the region.
Bogotá is the perfect starting point for delegates at Routes Americas to explore the opportunities that exist in all regions of the country, including their gastronomy, culture, people and other characteristics that make Bogota a multicultural city. Having held the event in Cartagena in 2013 it is now a perfect time to head back to Colombia for our 14th Routes Americas.
Colombia is a country with innumerable natural and cultural riches. In 2018, the country’s tourism industry enjoyed its best-ever year, seeing a growth of 8 percent. The growth of the air sector in Colombia has also been significant and led Colombia’s Civil Aviation Authority – Aerocivil, and the Ministry of Transportation, to design the Aeronautics Strategic Plan 2030, aimed at mobilising 100 million passengers and double cargo transportation in an institutional, competitive, connected, safe and sustainable environment, with a renewed infrastructure and a strengthened industry.
The thriving economy, which has welcomed more than 1,500 multinationals and has been ranked by América Economia as one of the best cities for doing business, is reflected in the fact that they have been considered the first aerospace city of the future in the Innovation and Attraction category according to the Financial Times, above cities such as London and Singapore.
