Barcelona WORLD ROUTES ESSENTIALS


YOUR INDISPENSIBLE GUIDE TO WORLD ROUTES 2017, TAKING PLACE IN BARCELONA ON SEPTEMBER 23-26


Change is on the agenda at World Routes 2017 in Barcelona


A timely focus on the future with 2020 vision


The future will be firmly under the spotlight at World Routes 2017, as the conference programme, which is sponsored by OAG, focuses on 2020. Opportunities to be discussed include the rise of the long-haul, low-cost market and cruise’s popularity. Meanwhile, delegates can learn how


best to deal with issues like destination sustainability and fluctuating oil prices to ensure they properly future-proof their businesses. Day one will feature a specific look at issues in Europe, where Brexit, security and consolidation are sure to loom large. Panelists including FlyBe CCO Vincent Hodder and Brussels Airport head of aviation development Léon Verhallen will


be able to offer perspectives from both sides of the Channel. Day two features a look at issues


elsewhere in the world, with Latin America’s flourishing aviation sector coming in to focus. Challenges such as infrastructure development and the growth of the low-cost carriers will be discussed, with experts including Daniel Ketchibachian, CEO at AA2000, and Puerto Rico Tourism Company’s Miguel Quiñones. Meanwhile, Marie Norman, head of


products and concepts, Aviation Business, and Skyscanner director of strategic partnerships Hugh Aitken will be among those looking at the digital future. Expect virtual reality and artificial intelligence to be on the agenda. Of course, the US under president


Donald Trump also gets special mention. Erik Hansen, senior director of domestic policy at USTA, and JetBlue Airways senior vice-president Scott Laurence will attempt to bring a measure of calm to the laptop ban, border security and America’s ageing airports.


The key


issues will be discussed
