Hannover Number cruncher - the key stats shaping the host of Routes Europe 2019

Following the announcement that will take place in Hannover, we take a look at some of the facts and figures on the city's aviation market.

Hannover in Germany has won a competitive bid to host the Routes Europe air service development forum in 2019.

The Hannover event will mark a return to Germany for the Routes business - the global World Routes forum was previously held in Berlin in 2011.

Routes Europe provides a meeting place for airports, airlines, tourism authorities and other stakeholders engaged in the planning of future European air services.

The event moves to a different city every year, allowing aviation industry decision makers to experience the airport and destination offer at first hand. Hannover is a centre of commerce in northern Germany and the capital of Lower Saxony. The state of Lower Saxony has a thriving automotive industry (including Volkswagen’s headquarters and main plant) and it is a powerful driver of the German economy, contributing 8.5% of GDP in 2015 (€ 258.5 billion).
