In spite of the health emergency that has strongly marked the air sector in 2020, the Bilbao Airport Route Development Committee has continued to work from different perspectives in order to contribute to the recovery and promotion of connectivity in the Bilbao-Bizkaia destination. Providing detailed information on the territory, as well as the characteristics and potential of the airport in the capital of Bizkaia has been one of the fundamental axes for the committee. The recently updated dossier presenting the territory’s air connectivity (Fly Bio) has been a valuable tool for achieving this objective. This document has accompanied the Committee in its meetings with companies such as Lufthansa, Volotea and Vueling so that they can restore and/or open new routes to the Bizkaia capital.
Routes Online, held this very month of December, is one of the most important professional meetings in the world’s commercial aviation sector, where this working group attended some twenty b2b meetings with the heads of the main national and international airlines to discuss new connectivity projects and to draw their attention to the BIO destination.
On a digital level, the Bilbao Airport Route Development Committee, which also closed different co-marketing actions with the main companies this year, has launched its own website, which offers updated information on the territory, the airport and the committee itself in three languages (Spanish, Basque and English), as well as recommendations and specific data regarding the conditions generated by Covid-19 at Bilbao airport. This working group has also opened a Twitter profile to which another will be added in January on the LinkedIN professional network to reflect the committee’s initiatives, current issues affecting the sector, as well as to highlight the projection of the Bilbao-Bizkaia destination.
