With terrorism on the rise security has also been tightened to help make sure that people feel safe when they visit a country. Terrorist activity such as the Manchester bombings and the London bridge bombings has an effect on inbound tourist as they may become hesitant in visiting the UK and its main cities this also affect domestic visitors they will also be discouraged in traveling to destinations that has been terrorized in the past before. Terrorist attacks have greatly affected the inbound and domestic tourist greatly as they are concerned about their safety when travelling to certain countries. The UK has gone stricter over the past years with health and safety and security therefore tourist can expect to be safe when traveling and staying in their desired destinations. People’s behaviour change when they travel to a new environment.
If airport personnel had been better trained and more diligent about the possibility of such a thing happening like 9/11 it could have been avoided. The new personnel and equipment along with the United States government in control of the airports is a new system that will now lessen the chance of another
Ever so often airports become a target of attack and crime. In response, there have been changes to airport security through the years, including increased security measures and new security agencies such as the federal agency Transportation Security Administration (TSA). With more attacks occurring more enhanced security is being made. Though many argue that these measures are meant to keep the travelers safe and the country as a whole safe, others might argue that the passengers are being violated and their privacy is being invaded. As a result of the many airport terrorist attacks, there’s been an increase in intensity of the security measures making it inconvenient and invasive for travelers.
River of bodies flowing in a rapid current, like streams to their destinations. The heart begins racing the moment the car pulls into the airport parking lot. The smell of jet fuel and taxi exhaust that combine to attack the senses with images of bizarre escapes and the kind of freedom that can only come from airports. Steady steps through the sliding and turning doors, observing that the airport is protected with shut windows, blocking the early morning sun rays from entering through the enclosed hallways of the long dark paths of the airport. Arrival at the immense building, crowds is what stands out to the eye, long queues at the check-in resemble to be the first hurdle.
The experiment’s objective is to show that travellers do not need to remove worn accessories and footwear during the screening procedure (Caswell, 2010). 5.2 Disadvantages of Using Full Body Scanners on Air Travel As there are those who believe that full body scanners are beneficial, there are also those who thought that they will bring harmful effects to the airline passengers by intruding on personal privacy and emitting radiation which is detrimental to human health (except for passive millimetre wave scanners). 5.2.1 Intrudes on Personal Privacy In the United States, TSA was prosecuted in an effort to halt the installation of security scanners in airports as EPIC (2010) asserted that it is unconstitutional as it is compulsory for travellers to undergo the procedure. EPIC also mentioned that full body scanners initiative is "unlawful, invasive, and ineffective". Moreover, photos created by full body scanners violate passengers’ confidentially by displaying explicit details of their bodies.
Iquinette Candler Mr. Freeman COLL 300 Analysis of Rhetorical Situation Thesis Statement: In the fast-paced world of traveling airport security weaknesses has been exposed on more than one occasion; the rise in government funding should protect travelers against malicious acts, diminish prohibited items from passing through screening, instantly detect banned flyers, and simultaneously keep screening delays to a minimum. 1. What is the goal in this paper? The goal of my paper is to present how much money has been spent to increase airport security, and if possible, include the effective rate of each procedure. I want to show that the current measures are enough, although they may cause delays at airports.
These assumptions concluded that all passengers were equally suspicious and the main purpose of airport security is to keep dangerous objects off of planes. According to Poole and Carafano (2006), “These assumptions resulted in the creation of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), a federal bureaucracy that has cost a considerable amount of money without making Americans noticeably safer.” Federalizing airport security was needed to ensure that a high level of security nationwide was provided regardless of the size of an airport or its functions. However, this rationale and approach of a one-size fits all drove inefficiency because the differences in airport size and operations affected both passengers and baggage’s. Due to the federalization of airport security, disadvantages that have arisen with TSA. As a result, some airports have remained with the private sector due to its
Businesses including hotel investments are facing difficult situations in the world today (Rohan, 2008). Terrorism has both direct and indirect effects on businesses; losses of life and property, decrease in foreign investment, disruption in supply chain, among many other effects were examples of direct impact of terrorism (Czinkota, Knight, Liesch & Steen, 2010). Terrorist attacks also have an indirect effect on the hotel investment which is mainly psychological effect on people (Greenbaum, Dugan & Lafree, 2007). There are other impacts of terrorism on international hotel investment which cannot be overlooked which includes loss of employment, cost of rescue, cleaning and rebuilding the facility, loss of confidence and sense of insecurity in the region where the attack occur (Greenbaum et al,2007; Paul, Bugnar & Mester
Additionally, the prevailing weather conditions placed them in a stressful environment. Consideration by airline companies to ensure the wellbeing of their personnel both psychologically and physically is recommended. This report presents the causes and effects with respect to the chain of events in a coherent, concise and
When the effects of terrorism are considered related to the tourism industry and hospitality industry, it is found to be safe to comment that the effect is considered negatively as it reduces the motivation of tourists to travel. For instance, the explosions of bombs in October 2002 killed more than two hundred people while shattering the image of the island being a beautiful and peaceful location for tourists (Korstanje & Skoll, 2013). Bryn (2013) confirmed that it led to the destruction of the reputation of this vacation destination. In the week of attack, the tourist organisations and operators removed their holiday programs from such tourist destinations as the higher season for the tourists was about to initiate. The occupancy levels of
