Routes Africa, which returned to the aviation event calendar last year with a successful event in Ghana, will take place this year in Mombasa in Kenya as part of a long-term commitment by Routes to help develop new routes to, from and within the continent.
To be held 8-10th December at the PrideInn Paradise, Shanzu Beach in Mombasa, Kenya, the event will be the 13th Routes Africa. It brings airlines, airports and tourism authorities together to discuss air services to, from and within Africa for over a decade.
Routes Africa 2019 will be hosted by Kenya Airports Authority (KAA), a State Corporation that is charged with the responsibility of providing and managing a coordinated system of airports in Kenya. The event will be supported by other Kenyan organizations.
Jonny Andersen Managing Director/CEO, Kenya Airports Authority said “Kenya is a regional aviation powerhouse in the region. Our geographical location gives us an advantage in connections to most international hub cities in the world. Kenya’s centralized proximity to Europe, Asia, Middle East, Americas and the rest of Africa makes this a profitable aviation route. Our status as a trade and tourist regional hub also makes Kenya an attractive destination.”
He added: “Routes conferences provide an excellent platform for the aviation industry to meet and make business decisions, will allow us to showcase Kenya’s available facilities and attractions. We are proud to host Routes Africa and look forward to welcoming delegates to magical Kenya”.
Steven Small, Brand Director for Routes, said: “We’re so excited to be returning to Africa in this beautiful city. We are sure that hosting Routes Africa 2019 will help the Kenya Airports Authority in achieving their goals, and we have no doubt that our delegates will enjoy this unique location and have a memorable time in Mombasa.”
Known for its landscapes, wildlife and cultures, Kenya attracts visitors from all over the world to experience its sweepings savannahs, tropical reefs, dense forests and snow-capped mountains, while the fertile lands export coffee, cotton, cashew nuts, and more to all around the globe.
