WORLD ROUTES Awards


Recognising the route development heroes


F


or the first time a new award at the World Routes Marketing Awards will recognise the contribution of top-performing individuals.


An “Individual Award for Outstanding Contribution to Route Development” will be introduced at World Routes 2017 in


September. It will be open to specialists from airports, airlines, tourism authorities and other stakeholders who have made a significant impact on the creation of new air services. The annual World Routes Marketing Awards already acknowledge the airport and destination marketing services that support the launch of new routes or the development of existing ones, making them highly regarded in the aviation industry. Now, the new category will shine a spotlight on the people who make the aviation industry tick, propelling growth in route networks and connecting cities across the globe. It also broadens the scope of the awards beyond airports and destinations to the rest of the aviation industry. The highest-performing individuals were selected from more than 20 entrants for their impact on their organisation and reputation within the sector.


Gabriel Schmilovich Isgut Director of network strategy and planning, Vueling Airlines


Gabriel joined Vueling Airlines in February 2012 after spending five years with Spanair, which he joined from AENA. Overall, Vueling grew its capacity by 8% in 2016, offering more than 33.5 million seats in the year. Its expansion, alongside fellow IAG-owned carrier LEVEL, has played a major role in the 13.8% capacity growth in the Spanish market in 2016. High-profile, recently added routes include a service to Oran in Algeria, served weekly from Valencia.


The airline also overcame traffic-


control industrial action in Europe, which contributed to significant temporary operational disruption, with performance recovering and stabilising in the fourth quarter.


By the year end, the carrier reported an 11.2% rise in total available seat kilometres to 33,844, while its seat factor also rose by 1.5 percentage points to 82.8%.


Stephanie Wear Economic and air service development,


Tenerife Tourism Corporation


Since her appointment in 2012, Stephanie has worked tirelessly to promote Tenerife as a tourist destination. In this time the island has seen a significant increase in air capacity, including 20% growth from the UK in 2016. Tourism is critical to Tenerife and


forms the backbone of the economy, much like the other Canary Islands. More than five million tourists visit the island each year, led by visitors from the UK and Spain. The hospitality

industry and services sector generate more than 60% of the island’s GDP. In 2016, visitors from the UK totalled


more than two million – a 16.1% increase on the previous year and the highest number ever recorded. In total, UK travellers accounted for 36.6% of all visitors to the island. Major new routes to the island


announced in recent months include easyJet’s weekly service from Naples, SAS’s weekly route from Copenhagen and a Lyon service from Vueling, also weekly.


Ignacio Biosca Head of airline relations and airport marketing, AENA


Ignacio has been with AENA for more than two decades, representing the interests of airports throughout Spain. He has been in his current role since April 2005, in which time he has had a major impact on the country’s aviation network. In 2016, more than 230 million passengers travelled through Spain’s airports, an 11% increase on the previous year. In the same year, the cargo traffic in Spanish airports amounted to more than 795,500
