Global nature of hospitality and aviation is crucial when addressing the need for emphatic, effective and efficient Crisis Management (CM) of significant events. Nowadays, the “visibility” of adverse events is almost immediate worldwide. It projects to the general public, family, and friends of those involved directly or indirectly (e.g. emergency landing on Hudson River US Airways Flight 1549 (National Transportation Safety Board, 2010) or Mumbai Hotel Attacks (Garg, 2010)). Presently, aviation had more chances to deal with adverse events, mainly due to its higher profile and the World’s focus on its developments. Regardless of that, sudden and unexpected nature of the crisis affects organisations in both industries in unpredictable ways offering little or no time to react at the very moment when it happens.
