NTA Joins Tourism Network in Combatting Avian Flu

The National Tour Association has joined the Tourism Emergency Response Network, a group of global travel organizations that was formed to prepare for a possible outbreak of avian flu. The organizations' priorities include working closely with United Nations and World Health Organization agencies that are working on the disease, sharing information and ideas, and giving "clear, concise and geographically specific" public messages. The formation of TERN was announced at the World Travel and Tourism Council's Global Travel and Tourism Summit, held last month in Washington. Other members include the World Tourism Organization, International Hotel & Restaurant Association, Pacific Asia Travel Association, International Federation of Tour Operators, United Federation of Travel Agents Associations, Airports Council International and the International Air Transport Association.
