Paul van den Brink Project manager, Cape Town Air Access


Cape Town Air Access was created in 2015 to intensify and broaden air access between South Africa’s Western Cape and targeted African and international markets to improve the region’s global economic competitiveness. The programme is a partnership


between Wesgro, the City of Cape Town, the Western Cape Government, Airports Company of South Africa, Cape Town Tourism and now South African Tourism. Since its inception, it has helped secure 10 new routes and facilitate


the expansion of existing ones. This has increased Cape Town International Airport’s capacity by more than 600,000 seats, which last year helped the airport reach the 10 million passengers per year mark for the first time. Notable successes for Cape Town Air


Access include securing new routes to Victoria Falls and Cologne as well as the expansion of Air France’s Paris route. Cape Town International Airport is expecting two million more international passengers this year than it processed in 2016.


Jo-Anne Arends Air service development manager, Aruba Airport Authority NV


Aruba Airport Authority, a winner at Routes Americas in 2016 and highly commended in 2017, is focussed on making maximum use of Reina Beatrix International Airport’s commercial potential and developing it into one of the leading airports in the Caribbean. Recent successes have included


Avianca increasing frequency from seven to 11 weekly flights between Bogota, Colombia and Aruba and flights between Aruba and other domestic destinations within Colombia, including Cali, Medellin and Pereira.


In May 2017, Aruba Airport Authority unveiled its Gateway 2030 project, the first major increase in Reina Beatrix’s capacity since 2000. The airport is currently at full capacity handling 2.6 million passengers annually. The project is valued at about $200 million with construction starting in 2018. The centerpiece of the redevelopment will be the new and expanded check-in facilities, baggage system and upgrades of the screening process to full EDS TSA standards for US-bound passengers.


Léon Verhallen Head of aviation development, Brussels Airport


Léon was approached in 2006 by Brussels Airport to set up and organise a new aviation development department after its privatisation. Aviation development at Brussels Airport takes responsibility for airline marketing, B2B and B2C passenger marketing, market analysis, traffic forecasting, market research and aviation strategy. The airport received a record


number of passengers during the first half of 2017, with more than 11.5 million users. This growth comes predominantly from short-haul flights

through carriers such as Ryanair. Long-haul traffic to and from


Brussels Airport has also shown a positive development since 2015, with the addition of flights to Toronto and Mumbai. Qeshm Air launched a weekly flight to Tehran at the end of June and Rwandair launched a flight from Kigali three times a week in July. As of the winter season, the


intercontinental network will be further expanded with three Hainan flights a week to Shanghai and a second daily Emirates flight to Dubai.
