Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 21 January 2015

Puerto Rico has been confirmed as the host destination for the 9th Routes Americas which will take place 7-9 February 2016 in San Juan.

The event, which is one of the most important route development forums for the entire Americas region, will be hosted by Puerto Rico Tourism Company with the support of their partners Aerostar Airport Holdings LLC and Meet Puerto Rico.

We are confident that the Island will serve as the perfect backdrop to a very productive Routes Americas. The Island may be known for its white sand beaches, spectacular scenery and vibrant culture, but it is also a great place to do business, said Ingrid I. Rivera Rocafort, Executive Director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company.

Located just above the Equator, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, Puerto Rico is part of the Greater Antilles right at the heart of the Western Hemisphere.

Hosting Routes Americas in 2016 will allow Puerto Rico to showcase everything that the destination has to offer to the wider aviation community with over 550 senior industry professionals expected to attend the event.

Katie Bland, Director Routes for UBM EMEA, organisers of the event, said, Puerto Rico is home to Luis Muoz Marn International Airport - the largest and busiest airport in the Caribbean - providing excellent connectivity to both North and South America and whose complete remodelling will be ready for showcasing in 2016. We look forward to working with Puerto Rico Tourism Company, Meet Puerto Rico, Aerostar and all of their partners over the coming twelve months.

US citizens can travel to Puerto Rico without the need of a passport.
