Between April 22-24, the 13th annual Routes Europe congress will be held in Bilbao to plan and negotiate new air services in the region.
This event will bring together 1200 participants from 300 airports, 100 airlines, and 50 European tourism authorities, which makes it the most important European event in its sector.
The fact that it’s being held in the Basque Country is undoubtedly a way of recognizing the weight our country has attained in the last few years thanks to the fact that tourism has added in an important number of travelers to what the Basque airports were already handling. This has allowed those airports to predict over six million passengers in 2018.
In addition to getting this event to be held in Bilbao, it’s going to help increase the possibilities of an increase in the number of connections that unite us to other cities in Europe.
