Routes Africa will return after a two-year hiatus, due to demand from the route development community.
The event, which will be the 12th Routes Africa, is the most long standing and established aviation forum bringing together leading airlines, airports and tourism authorities to discuss air services to, from and within Africa for over a decade.
This year’s event will be held in Accra, Ghana, from July 16th-18th and hosted by Ghana Airports Company.
John Dekyem Attafuah, managing director, Ghana Airports Company, said: “GACL is pleased to play host to the 12th Routes Africa.
“It is a unique opportunity for us to showcase Ghana to the world.
“The aviation industry in Ghana, stands out as one of the fastest growing and most competitive in the region.
“GACL on its part, has taken the needed steps to expand infrastructure to meet the growing demand and is poised to provide world-class facilities and services for the benefit of our stakeholders.”
Routes Africa’s return to the annual route development calendar sees a number of new innovations as part of the event, including a certified route development accreditation for all attendees by Routes’ sister company, ASM.
ASM, who pioneered the concept of route development 25 years ago and established Routes events, will be holding a dedicated version of their world renowned ‘Fundamentals of Route Development’ training course as part of the Routes Africa programme.
