Routes Africa 2013 preparations in final push towards Kampala meeting


(Posted 02nd June 2013)

Uganda’s Minister for Tourism Maria Mutagamba will formally open the Routes Africa 2013 meeting, which will bring together leading airlines, airports, tourism authorities and related services in the lake side resort of Munyonyo between July 07 – 09.

Keynote speaker is Dr. Titus Naikuni, CEO and Group Managing Director of Kenya Airways, one of the top carriers from within Africa to attend the event. Others are Ethiopian Airlines, South African Airways, Egypt Air as well as fast growing RwandAir, among some 30 or so airlines confirmed to attend from across the continent.

From further abroad will Brussels Airlines and Etihad be in Uganda for the event, as will be United Airlines from the US, Vueling from Spain, Mango from South Africa and Nasair / Saudi Arabia.

More than 250 delegates are expected to meet for 2 days of intense discussions and networking in an event, which has gained greater prominence year after year, and which during last year’s conference in the Seychelles truly gained global attention. Notably will the Seychelles’ Minister for Tourism and Culture, Alain St. Ange, be one of the main speakers at the event, from where fresh ideas about improved air links within and to Africa will be discussed.
