Routes Middle East & Africa conference debuts Sunday in Bahrain

The inaugural Routes Middle East & Africa conference opens on Sunday in Manama,  Bahrain, and runs through Tuesday.

The conference will be hosted by the managing body of the Bahrain Airport Company (BAC), which operates Bahrain International Airport (BIA). The event, similar to Routes Africa 2014, will bring together over 300 delegates from the Middle East and Africa to network and discuss air-travel industry issues, including new airline-route opportunities throughout the region.

“We are excited and look forward to welcoming all delegates to the inaugural Routes Middle East & Africa,” Mohamed Khalil, BAC's chief commercial officer, said. “We have received a tremendous response from the regional aviation community and have secured an exclusive list of high-caliber experts spanning the aviation sector to shed some light on very current topics affecting our industry. There is no doubt this forum will be an incredible knowledge pool and will facilitate plenty of networking opportunities. It has been a pleasure working with the Routes team to bring this prominent industry event to the Kingdom of Bahrain; this is our chance to showcase Bahrain’s capabilities as both aviation leaders and exemplary hosts.”

“We are delighted to be holding the inaugural Routes Middle East & Africa in Bahrain,” Adrian Newton, group director for transport and technology at UBM, said. “Africa and the Middle East are two of the most dynamic aviation markets in the world, and this event will bring the wider aviation community to the Kingdom of Bahrain, providing our hosts with the ideal opportunity to showcase their destination and reaffirm their status as an aviation hub for the region. The decisions taken at Routes Middle East & Africa will be decisive in shaping the future of aviation in the region for years to come.”
