International Airport Executive Shortlisted for World Award

Uel Hoey of Belfast International Airport has been shortlisted for a new international 'Individual Award for Outstanding Contribution to Routes Development’.

He is one of 12 people from the airline industry worldwide named today to be shortlisted for the honour in the World Routes Marketing Awards.

The award is being introduced for the first time at World Routes 2017 in September and is open to specialists from airports, airlines, tourism authorities and other stakeholders who have had a significant impact on the creation of new air services.

The new category will shine a spotlight on the people who make the aviation industry tick, propelling growth in route networks and connecting cities across the globe. It also broadens the scope of the awards beyond airports and destinations to the rest of the aviation industry.

The other airport categories remain the same: ‘Under 4 Million Passengers’; ‘4 Million-20 Million Passengers’; ‘20 Million-50 Million Passengers’; ‘Over 50 Million Passengers’; along with a ‘Destination’ category. Belfast City Airport, Dublin Airport Cork and Shannon are also shortlisted in one of these categories.

Shortlisted individuals and organisations are being asked to submit their entries to the awards. Senior airline executives will review the airport and destination categories, while a panel of executives from the wider aviation industry will judge the new award for individuals.

An awards ceremony will take place at World Routes 2017 in Barcelona on September 25 during the Networking Evening. Around 3,000 delegates from 300 airlines, 700 airports and 130 tourism authorities are expected attend the event.
