Successful Air Service Connectivity remains a critical challenge in the development of tourism and commerce around the world.  Now, more than ever destinations, both local and national, must utilize comprehensive best-practices when they engage with airlines.  During this session, experts from ICF Aviation Advisory (formerly SH&E), a UNWTO Affiliate Member discussed techniques and methodologies that enable destinations to talk to airlines in their own analytical language in order to provide holistic proposals that include business cases, incentive packages and stakeholder commitment.

The ICF team presented best-practice methodologies for developing successful air service programs and the ongoing activities nvolved.  The presentation showcased examples of successes in work done for/by national tourism ministries, local tourist destinations, business markets and religious destinations.
