With millions of jobs dependent on a strong restart of the travel industry, World Routes is looking to unite decision-makers from airlines, airports and destinations to define recovery strategies.

Senior network planners who have already confirmed their attendance at the event include:

  • Director, International Network Planning, American Airlines
  • Head of Planning, Breeze Airways
  • Network Planning Team Leader, British Airways
  • Senior Director Planning & Alliances, Copa Airlines
  • Director Network Planning, Eurowings Discover
  • Vice President, Network Planning, JetBlue Airways

  • Director of Commercial Strategy, LATAM
  • Director of Route Development, Ryanair
  • Senior Director Network, Schedules & Alliances, TAP Portugal
  • Network Planning Director, Volotea
  • Head of Network & Scheduling, Wizz Air

"Our ability to consistently unite decision-makers from the route development community, means Routes continues to influence the world's air services; with over 3,500 new air services are connected to meetings at Routes events in the last three years alone,” said Steven Small, Brand Director for Routes. "The number of airlines and the seniority of the airline delegates confirmed to attend World Routes in Milan demonstrates the importance of in-person meetings to help overcome the impact of this pandemic.”

In addition to meetings, there will be a strong conference programme; airline CEOs including Wizz Air’s József Váradi and Air Dolimiti’s Joerg Eberhart will deliver keynote addresses, highlighting how their respective carriers have adapted to the pandemic. Networking sessions including a welcome reception and formal evening will also support airports, destinations and suppliers in fostering new and developing existing business relationships with their target airlines.

Taking place in Italy for the first time in 20 years, the 26th World Route Development Forum (10th-12th October 2021) - organised by Manchester based Informa Group Limited -  will be hosted by SEA Milan Airports, in partnership with local stakeholders Lombardy Region, the Municipality of Milan, ENIT - Italian Tourist Board and Bergamo Airport. World Routes will showcase the growth and economic strengths of Milan and the surrounding Lombardy region. As hosts of the 2026 Winter Olympics, the home of one of the largest convention centres in Europe and previous EXPO 2015 hosts, Milan is the perfect destination for the 26th World Route Development Forum.
