Crisis Management: ATTA® in times of Crisis

ATTA plays a leading role linking member to media in the event of accidents or emergencies involving tourists in Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands. The national and regional news media consistently contact ATTA for information on breaking news items affecting tourists in the region. Working with the tour operator, ground operator and product supplier in Africa or the Indian Ocean, and the national tourist board where possible, ATTA acts in a central role, briefing the news media on behalf of ATTA members, whilst accumulating and disseminating information so that all parties are reliably informed.
