Communications Key for Airlines, Airports

The key to dealing with these issues, according to most PR pros within the air travel industry, is communication. Ken Capps, VP of public affairs with Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, says communications execs must keep in mind that it's the traveler who is key. His recommendations for any corporation working to minimize frustration among stakeholders in a time of crisis: Clear, concise information, frequently communicated. (kcapps@dfwairport.com)
