The Bahamas has been chosen to host the Routes America 2025 conference, to be held 10-13 February 2025 at the Atlantis, Paradise Island. According to the Bahamas tourism ministry, the conference represents a significant milestone in the destination’s commitment to enhancing global air connectivity and fostering sustainable tourism growth.

Over 900 industry professionals from airlines, airports and destinations are expected to participate. The 2012 event was also held in the Bahamas.

“The hosting of Routes America 2025 in Nassau signifies a pivotal moment in The Bahamas’ aviation and tourism sectors,” noted the Hon. I. Chester Cooper, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Tourism, Investments & Aviation. “It’s a testament to our dedication to expanding global air connectivity and driving sustainable tourism growth. The expansion in airlift and ongoing airport developments throughout our archipelago have positioned us to achieve our goal of increasing stopover visitor arrivals to the country.”

Routes America serves as a platform for airlines, airports and tourism authorities to come together, explore new route opportunities and strengthen partnerships. The event facilitates discussions on air service development, market trends and innovative strategies to optimise air travel networks.

“We are honoured to welcome industry leaders once again to The Bahamas for this prestigious event,” said Vernice Walkine, chief executive Nassau Airport Development Company. “Since hosting Routes Americas in 2012, we continue to see positive returns from our involvement.

“Lynden Pindling International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the Caribbean, and we recognise the importance of fostering collaboration and forging new air service agreements to enhance connectivity to our beautiful islands.”
