Why AviaDev?

The city of Valencia has been confirmed as the inaugural host of AviaDev Europe, the aviation development forum geared towards Europe’s regional airports and airlines. 

With over 300 regional hubs operating in Europe, passengers benefit from fewer delays, shorter waiting times at security and immigration; whilst airlines can negotiate better and more cost effective slots. Combined, this paves the way for a bright future for regional airports across Europe. 

AviaDev Europe will bring together regional airports , airlines, tourism authorities, governments and industry suppliers.  AviaDev offers attendees the ability to pre-arrange meetings in professional surroundings, offering the best chance to make a real connection.

REPORT: Regional Airports - 

Busting the Myths

There is a perception of what makes a regional airport that has been created over many years that needs to change. That perception is generally based around small airport terminal facilities, one or two flights a day – frequently operated by small turbo-prop aircraft with perhaps a maximum 50 seats capacity, expensive air fares, a small car rental facility, locally made cakes and meals in a small cafeteria area and early closing on most days! That may have been an image many have, but the world is changing rapidly, and regional airports are where the opportunity is today.

AviaDev Europe has partnered with Midas Aviation, an experienced team of aviation specialists that understand data, the power of effective analysis and the value of clear concise information to provide a complimentary report at the myths surrounding regional airports. Using Valencia as an example of just how regional airports are changing.

"Regional is rising. Having grown 16% in 2017 and over 20% every month so far in 2018, Valencia Airport is a clear example of the huge potential that exists for growth at regional airports and the massive contribution they make to the development of tourism and whole economies in middle-sized cities"
