The pandemic, which began to impact air passenger transport at the start of 2020, has had a devastating effect on air connectivity. With the development of vaccination and health measures in place, the sector is on the road to recovery this year. As part of the development of its strategy to boost the connectivity of Bilbao Bizkaia, the Bilbao Airport Routes Committee, following its recent participation in Routes Reconnected, will be present at the largest international trade fair in the tourism sector, FITUR, which will take place from tomorrow, 19 to 23 May in Ifema (Madrid). “The main objective is to have face-to-face contact with agents related to the sector: airports and airlines, mainly”, say sources from the Bilbao Airport Route Development Committee.
Specifically, representatives of the committee will meet ‘in situ’ with spokespersons from AENA’s Marketing and Airline Relations Department and with airlines that will have their own stand at FITUR, such as Iberia. The work agenda for these days also includes meetings with the Public Tourism Promotion Agencies of other cities or communities that are also working to promote connectivity (Barcelona, Seville, Valencia…) in order to “share experiences and see how they are approaching the summer and future prospects”.
