The Bilbao airport route development committee is participating in the online edition of Routes, which is being held from today until 4 December. During these days they will hold virtual b2b – personal – meetings with around 20 airlines. The aim of the committee is to ensure that in this situation of health alert and great losses for the aeronautical industry and tourism, the companies already operating at Bilbao Airport consolidate or increase the number of destinations and flights. Contacts will also be established with other companies that do not yet have links with Bilbao airport to work together on new connectivity projects and attract their attention to the BIO destination.
Routes is the main European and international meeting point for the commercial aviation sector and allows companies to establish commercial relations with airport managers, institutions and entities in charge of promoting airports and tourist and business destinations.
The COVID-19 pandemic has prevented the holding of the face-to-face meetings planned for 2020, the one that should have been held in Norway in April and the one announced for Milan in September. This online fair also replaces the one planned for the same dates at Amsterdam Airport.
Bilbao Airport Route Development Committee comes to Routes with a proactive profile, at a crucial time to find out first-hand the airlines’ forecasts for the coming months.
Passenger air transport is facing 2021 with moderate optimism and hopes that the positive evolution of the pandemic with the arrival of vaccines will allow it to get off the ground.
The Bilbao Airport Route Development Committee is made up of the Provincial Council of Bizkaia, Bilbao City Council, the Basque Government, AENA, Bilbao Air and the Bilbao Chamber of Commerce.
