City of Eternal Spring set to welcome Routes Asia delegates

Asia’s largest route de­velopment forum returns to China, bringing 800 aviation decision-mak­ers to Kunming


The 13th Routes Asia, the largest route development fo­rum for the entire Asia region, will open this weekend in Kun­ming, capital city of the Yunnan Province of China.

This year’s event, which will take place from March 15 to 17, is hosted by Yunnan Airport Group (YAG) owners of Kun­ming Changshui International Airport, and supported by their partners Yunnan Provincial Civil Aviation Development and

Management Bureau, and Yun­nan Provincial Tourism Devel­opment Commission. The last time Routes Asia took place in China was in Chengdu in 2012, hosted by Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport, which was subsequently selected to host World Routes, the 22nd World Route Development Fo­rum, in 2016.

Routes Asia will bring togeth­er 800 delegates, representing 118 airlines, almost 230 airports and almost 60 countries to devel­op new air services to, from and within the Asia-Pacific region. The event attracts the highest level of decision-makers, includ­ing many industry leaders and senior policy makers.

Mr. Tang Xuefan, President of Yunnan Airport Group Co., Ltd. commented: “We are greatly honoured to host Routes Asia 2015 in Kunming. This great event is a good opportunity for Yunnan Airport Group and all airports in Asia to communicate with and work with airlines and tourism organisations. It is also a key platform to join the efforts of both the air transport indus­try and tourism industry for more sustainable development in Yunnan, China and the Asia-Pacific region.

On behalf of YAG, I wish all delegates truly feel and enjoy the colourful Yunnan and para­dise of tourism,” he added.
