Highlights of Business Travel Advisory vis-a-vis the Brussels Attacks
With the situation unfolding in real-time, the advisory provides common sense steps that business travelers, employers, and employees should be taking. Among them are the following. First, travel security managers should immediately check in with their employees in Belgium to determine their status and location. Employees on the ground, of course, should also check in immediately if they have not done so. Second, anyone traveling into or out of Belgium should expect significant travel delays. Third, travelers already in Belgium and the Zaventem municipality should await further instructions from the Belgian authorities. Finally, those in the impacted areas should closely follow local news reports.
