Airport bosses head for Abu Dhabi World Route Development eventSeptember 26, 2012
Senior Management from Doncaster Sheffield Airport along with colleagues from owners The Vantage Airport Group are heading to Abu Dhabi this week to meet with airlines from across the globe at the 18th World Route Development Forum.
The conference, taking place from 29th September to 2nd October, is an annual global gathering of the world’s top airlines and airports and is seen as the meeting place for the world’s route development industry.
The team attending from Doncaster Sheffield Airport includes the CEO, the Commercial Director and other Senior Airport Management who will be meeting with a number of key decision makers from airlines from the UK, Europe and elsewhere across the globe, as the Airport looks to develop business further. High on the agenda will be the approval of the FARRRS link road as the Airport team briefs airlines on the significance of this scheme.
Meetings are already booked with approximately 20 airlines during the four day event.
Craig Richmond, CEO commented, “Following the green light for the FARRRS link road, this event gives us a great opportunity to tell airlines about the tremendous benefits this road will bring and the opportunities available to develop their business from here as a consequence.
“We want airlines to know that this new road will place the Airport at the heart of the Sheffield City Region and beyond, positioning us as the natural airport of choice for the region’s passengers.”
