“I would like to thank everyone who helped us book this major event. Routes Americas 2019 will position YQB as a world-class airport capable of rivalling the best in the industry,” Mr. Gagné added.
Twenty some public figures, including the Prime Minister of Canada and the Premier of Québec, supported the event, which will benefit the city, province, and country. In addition to generating almost 3,000 person-nights in the middle of the winter season and an estimated $1.5 million in economic spinoffs, the event will shine a light on the Québec City region for key players in the global aviation industry.
A delegation from Québec City will attend Routes Americas 2018 in Quito, Ecuador February 13–15 to promote the event.
