The event, which attracts more than 3000 delegates from major airlines, airports and other tourism and aviation businesses, will become the biggest conference ever held in South Australia.
It will also be the first time World Routes has been held in Australiasia.
International airports will pitch to airlines for new route opportunities during the three-day forum.
The 2016 World Routes Conference was held last month in Chengdu, China. The event is headed to Barcelona, Spain, in 2017.
South Australian Tourism Minister Leon Bignell said hosting the 2019 event was a huge coup for South Australia.
“It is the world’s biggest trade conference and will help deepen our connections with aviation leaders as well as see more than $20 million pumped into our visitor economy,” he said.
Adelaide is gaining a reputation as a convention city.
The South Australian capital will also host the 68th International Astronautical Congress in 2017 at the Adelaide Convention Centre, which is undergoing a major redevelopment.
“Our investments in recent years in our vibrant city and magnificent regions and our efforts to attract new major events to South Australia are delivering immediate results,” Bignell said.Jump to next article
