Senior Management from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (JLA) 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 JLA 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 recently completed £12m terminal developments as the Airport team briefs airlines on the significance of these improvements and the subsequent extremely positive feedback from customers now using the airport.
Meetings are already booked with approximately 20 airlines during the four day event.

Craig Richmond, CEO commented, "Having invested over £12m in the terminal here at JLA, we believe these recent improvements have created a ‘best in class’ passenger experience. This event gives us a great opportunity to tell airlines about the changes that have taken place and the opportunities available to develop their business from here as a consequence."
