ROUTES ASIA REPORT BACK


Business is booming in Asia


>>>Routes Asia in Incheon, South Korea proved to be a big success, with airports reporting that they had had extremely encouraging conversations with airline network planners from all over the Asia-Pacific region.


O


ver 400 delegates gathered in Incheon, South Korea in late March for the 9th annual Routes Asia event and, with South Korea’s premier hub also marking its 10th anniversary, the event proved to be the perfect celebration of excellence in South Korean aviation and airport operations. Over 70 airlines and 150 airports from all over the Asia-Pacific region travelled to Incheon for the event and there was also a strong showing from European and North American airports that are keen to grow their slice of the booming Asian markets. The spectacular Gala Dinner evening, hosted by Chae-Wook Lee, president and CEO of Incheon International Airport Corporation, and his team, celebrated the very best in contemporary Korean culture. In a first at a Routes event, there was even a fashion show by a world-renowned fashion designer, South Korea’s Lie Sang Bong. Speaking exclusively to Routes News after the show, he explained that his designs reflect Korean history and culture and he believes airports, as facilitators of global travel, are crucial to the exchange of creative ideas around the world.


Incheon International Airport Corporation’s Lee said: “Routes Asia 2011 is very meaningful as it is held in celebration of Incheon Airport’s 10th anniversary. With a successful hosting of this event, we will enhance our status as the best hub airport of North East Asia and provide delegates with a different kind of experience enriched with art and culture.” That they certainly did.
