Airline Crisis Management Solution Integrated approach for crisis and casualty handling
A high degree of internal and external coordination combined with a lot of additional media attention, all in a very short and unexpected time frame, make the work of the people involved in responding to the emergency extremely challenging. Mismanagement during this time is likely to generate a lot of negative publicity and adversely impact the brand. In some cases, this could even escalate to a stage where it could signal the downfall of the airline. Hence, an integrated response to an emergency is highly critical to help safeguard the business and the brand.
