Airport Authority Seeks to Boost Air Service at World Routes Forum

The Memphis Shelby County Airport Authority (MSCAA) is continuing its relentless pursuit to add frequent and affordable air service through airline meetings at the upcoming World Routes 2014 Forum September 20-23.

The event, which takes place in Chicago this year, is expected to draw 3,000 aviation professionals, with representation from 300 airlines, 800 airports and 200 tourism authorities.

This forum allows for numerous pre-arranged meetings between airport executives, airlines, charter operators, and other aviation professionals.

“This is a great opportunity for the Memphis International Airport,” said Scott Brockman, President and CEO of MSCAA. “Chairman Sammons and I will be meeting with between 10-15 airlines, five airports and several international charter operators.”

During last year’s World Routes forum, MSCAA representatives met with representatives from American Airlines and Philadelphia International Airport. American added three new daily nonstop flights between MEM and PHL in June 2014.
