Hotel Risk Assessments:
Optimising Procedures for the Aviation Industry
This report provides an analysis of the risks involved for the airline industry in the selection of appropriate hotels and accommodation for hosting their staff whilst operating worldwide.
An overview of the correct method for structuring a hotel risk assessment is provided, followed by an exploration of the key themes that travel risk security managers within the airline industry should monitor when assessing the suitability of any location for the security of their employees and travellers.
Airlines face a multitude of threats across the entire breadth and scope of their operations. In the mind of the public, threats to the safety and integrity of the aircraft operated by airlines are chief amongst these concerns, exemplified by the risk of terrorism and mechanical malfunction. Yet as employers, the airline industry must also grapple with the risks posed to their employees, assets, and reputation when operating in locations across the world with varying levels of risk. Different locations require varying levels of emphasis on each of these themes, necessitating a flexible yet comprehensive approach to risk management which seeks to utilise all resources at a travel risk security manager’s disposal to achieve the intended outcome.
Green = low risk | Yellow = moderate risk | Orange = high risk | Red = Severe risk
