COVID-19: Routes Asia and World Routes 2020 Get New Dates
Due to the lingering travel uncertainties as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic, organizers of Routes Asia and World Routes have postponed the two events.
The two events will now take place in 2021. Routes Asia will now take place on 2-4 June 2021 and World Routes on 5-7 September 2021.

Originally, Routes Asia was scheduled for 8-10 October 2020 in Chiang Mai, Thailand while World Routes was scheduled for 14-16 November 2020 in Milan, Italy. Routes events are unique forums dedicated to the development of air services, bringing together airlines, airports and destinations to meet, plan, discuss and negotiate new and existing flights.
Five ‘regional’ route development forums are held between February and December in the Americas, Asia, Europe, Africa/Middle East and Silk Road/Russian Commonwealth, and the flagship World Routes event will take place on 5-7 September 2021.
Aviation is a vital component of the global economy, supporting 28.8 million jobs and accounting for $1.8 trillion of global GDP in 2019 alone. It will be critical in enabling future economic recovery from the short and long-term effects of COVID-19.
Routes forums will play a pivotal role in supporting airlines, airports and aviation stakeholders, as they seek to rebuild the world’s air services.
