The annual Routes Marketing Awards recognise excellence in airport and destination marketing. Airlines vote for the marketing services that support the successful launch of new routes or the development of existing ones, making them highly regarded in the aviation industry.
Regional heats are held at the Routes Americas, Routes Asia and Routes Europe events, with the finals taking place at World Routes later in the year.
Airports are split into size categories and there is a destination award for tourism boards. Senior airline executives judge the entries.
