GBTA Issues Statement On Paris Terrorist Attacks

Posted on November 18, 2015


ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) has issued a statement in response to the Paris attacks and pledged to work with governments, private industry and business travelers to ensure the future safety and security of the global travel system.

“The terrorist attacks that claimed the lives of more than a 120 innocent people and injured scores more are not just an assault on Paris, but on our modern way of life,” GBTA President Christle Johnson said. “On behalf of the Global Business Travel Association, let me express our deepest sympathies to the French people and to those directly affected by the attacks. We stand with the people of France today. French President François Hollande, understandably, has closed the borders of France, declared a state of emergency, and called for three days of mourning. As a result a number of travelers are stranded in France. As a strong and unified business travel industry, we will do everything we can to provide resources to these travelers in this time of need.”

“Over the next days and weeks, we will learn more about how these terrible attacks were planned and executed,” said Michael W. McCormick, executive director and COO of GBTA. “GBTA stands ready to work with governments, private industry and business travelers to do everything within our power to ensure the future safety and security of our global travel system.”
