World Routes, the unrivalled airline route development forum, and global tourism charity the Travel Foundation, will join forces for this year’s event in Barcelona in September. World Routes brings together leading airlines, airports and tourism authorities to discuss future global air services. It moves to a new city every year to highlight different destinations and markets to route development professionals. The Travel Foundation, which works to increase the benefits of tourism fodestinations, will curate a series of presentations and other live content for delegates, based around the theme: ‘growing the value of tourism’.
The programme will focus on opportunities for destinations, and those who invest in them, to get more from the tourism they are developing – for businesses, communities and the environment. The Travel Foundation will also be the official charity partner for World Routes, providing opportunities for all delegates to support the cause.
