What is TakeOff Cargo?

Our brand new event, TakeOff Cargo, will unite the stakeholders involved in the development of air cargo transportation.
TakeOff Cargo will support organisations in identifying potential opportunities, generating new business, and adding additional frequencies into the market.

Why is TakeOff Cargo taking place?

We understand that many of our long-standing industry partners have relied on cargo-diversified revenue streams to withstand some of the financial pressures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic on passenger traffic.

For over 25 years, Routes has provided industry-renowned forums for the world's leading airlines, airports, and destinations to negotiate new and existing air services.

TakeOff Cargo will provide an opportunity for these partners to meet and build relationships that will go on to shape the world’s future air route networks.
