Good morning, Everybody!
My name is Òscar Oliver (@Oscar_life) and I was born in Barcelona 43 years ago. I’m glad to have the opportunity to share with you my tweets during a week. I will try to show interesting and exciting contents related to the air transport industry.
Since 2011 I’m in charge of the Commercial Direction of Aeroports de Catalunya, the public agency of the Government of Catalonia that directly manages two small airports, Lleida-Alguaire airport and Andorra-La Seu airport, and contributes to manage other three airports in Catalonia (Barcelona airport, Girona airport and Reus airport) collaborating with the owner and manager of them, the Spanish public agency AENA. Aeroports de Catalunya also has as a purpose to contribute to develop the air transport industry in Catalonia, working with other Catalan institutions in order to attract new companies and to develop new economic activities in this sense.
The last 5 years I had the opportunity to attend every year the World Route Development Forum representing Barcelona airport. World Routes is the main workshop in the airline industry since 1995. During four days, more than 3.000 delegates representing airlines and airports around the world discuss about new air routes and air transport services. Since 2012, I attended also Routes Asia representing Barcelona airport.
I organized and participated in a lot of business trips to different Asian countries in order to maintain high-level conversations and negotiations with airlines. The main objective of all these years has been to improve the long haul offer of Barcelona airport, specially working together with the airlines from Asia and signing agreements with them.
Finally but important, since 2014 I’m in charge of the candidacy and the organization of the World Routes 2017 in our city, Barcelona. This project is the result of a good cooperation between different Spanish and Catalan public and private institutions: the Government of Catalonia, the Barcelona City Council, the Barcelona Chamber of Commerce and AENA. I invite you to know a little more about World Routes 2017 in Barcelona in the following link: http://www.routesonline.com/events/189/world-routes-2017/.
Thank you so much!
