The Route Development Group (RDG) has just announced that the 8th Routes Asia is to be held in Adelaide, South Australia in 2010. The forum is a strategically important event for all air service development professionals in the Asia Pacific region. Taking place in April 2010, this planning event will be hosted by Adelaide Airport Ltd (AAL).
Managing Director, Phil Baker, says the airport had instigated efforts to attract the Routes Asia event to Adelaide, because it provides an excellent chance to show airlines first -hand the airport’s state-of-the-art terminal facilities as well as South Australia’s tourism potential.
“Routes Asia provides us with a rare opportunity to meet face-to-face with the decision makers from many of the region’s major airlines, and at the same time have the opportunity to show off what we consider to be one of the world’s most innovative and modern terminals.”
The State Government, through the South Australian Tourism Commission (SATC) and Department for Trade and Economic Development (DTED), along with AAL and the Adelaide Convention and Tourism Authority (ACTA) worked together to secure the Forum, highlighting the important interdependence between the various authorities. This will be the first time the event is being held in Australia.
As the prime gateway to South Australia, Adelaide Airport is currently providing close to seven million passengers annually with efficient, comfortable and world-class services. For a growing number of passengers, especially international, it is the first taste of Australia and Adelaide Airport seeks to combine South Australia’s Mediterranean lifestyle and cosmopolitan image with its well-earned reputation for smart, efficient and high-tech business facilities.
The announcement comes at the end of the end of the 7th Routes Asia in Hyderabad, India. Following on from this year’s success, the 2010 forum promises to attract 400 delegates, including 120 airlines from around the globe.
