New aviation capacity for Australia at World Routes conference
19 September 2018
A delegation of 15 Australian aviation partners exhibited together at the world’s largest aviation forum in Guangzhou this week, World Routes 2018, to attract and secure sustainable new aviation capacity into Australia.
“Whilst international aviation capacity to Australia now exceeds 25 million seats per year, further increasing this capacity will only strengthen and help sustain our tourism industry in the long run,” said Australia’s Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment Simon Birmingham.
Next year, World Routes 2019 will take place in Adelaide from 21 to 24 September and is being hosted by the South Australian Tourism Commission, Adelaide Airport, the Adelaide Convention Bureau and Tourism Australia.
“This is a unique opportunity for Australia and also South Australia to take centre stage and have the biggest players in world aviation in our own backyard,” Minister Birmingham said.
