IHG CEO on Terrorism: “Business Comes Back”

While the executive did point out that the threats were dreadful, he claims they are not new to the travel business. “We have to try and protect our guests and our employees, but from a travel perspective people respond very quickly,” Solomons said. “Once it has happened people forget it and move on, and business comes back.”
