Travel and Transport, GBTA, ASTA reach out to Washington

March 20, 2020

Travel and Transport has led the way in reaching out to our elected representatives in the U.S. House and Senate, working with our trade associations internationally, and requesting support and advocacy for the travel industry as it endures the global COVID-19 pandemic crisis. 

An article about our outreach efforts was published today in The Company Dime, featuring Travel and Transport Chairman and CEO, Kevin O'Malley.

"Yes, airlines, cruise lines, and hotels need help, but so do we, and we are in the middle of them, feeding bookings," O'Malley told David Jonas.  The Company Dime has made this story available to non-subscribers and you can read it for free here.   

 

Here's where you can help!

Grassroots efforts can be powerful. Small efforts put forth by a lot of people add up. We encourage you to contact your state's federal representatives, expressing the urgent need to help our travel industry. Visit these links to contact your members of Congress who can help give us a voice in this important national discussion: U.S. House of Representatives | U.S. Senate
