U.S. Travel Reacts to Electronic Devices Ban

Published on : Thursday, March 23, 2017

U.S. Travel Association's Education SeminarU.S. Travel Association Executive Vice President for Public Affairs Jonathan Grella issued the following statement on the ban announced Tuesday by the Department of Homeland Security on some electronic devices in the cabins of certain international flights:

 

“The American travel community supports efforts to make flying more secure. We urge the federal government to make every effort to minimize disruption to legitimate travelers by clearly and quickly articulating the details of the new policy to enforcement personnel and the flying public. Even with security as a justification, it does not absolve authorities of the responsibility to communicate.

 

“As with all security policies, we further urge that this new security measure be continually reassessed moving forward to ensure it remains relevant and effective in the ever-shifting threat environment.

 

“We continue to hope that highly visible changes to security protocols in the future will be accompanied by a clear message that the government’s intent is not to suppress, but to secure travel, and that legitimate international business and leisure travelers remain welcomed and valued by the United States.”
