There are Many Kinds of Aviation PR Disasters
At 9:38 a.m. on September 11, 2001, when American Airlines flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon, the call went out to LEVICK. When a foreign airplane manufacturer’s popular small plane started falling out of the sky, the call went to LEVICK. When foreign airlines expand into the US and compete for highly valuable terminal space, they come to LEVICK. For multiple foreign airlines and airline manufacturers looking to compete in the US, they come to LEVICK. For JetBlue and US Air, when they needed crisis plans and preparedness, they came to LEVICK.
Airlines, airports, manufacturers, and aviation suppliers all need communications help at some point. Whether it is about public affairs, regulatory issues, competition, market entry, or–heaven forbid–a crash, the aviation industry requires specialized communications teams.
First Responders When You Need Us Most
The challenges for the aviation industry are unique. When United Airlines deplaned one of its passengers, caught on video at O’Hare and broadcast around the world on social media, including 20 million downloads per hour in China, it outlined just how challenging aviation is. The great untold story of United is that their CEO, Oscar Munoz, had a long history of exceptional response to crisis in multiple industries. He is a true leader. If a communications crisis can occur on his watch, it can occur anywhere.
Airlines in the US and across the globe turn to LEVICK to provide comprehensive aviation communications and to serve as first responders in the face of a tragedy. We’ll work with you long before takeoff to develop thorough crisis communications plans that are ready to go at a moment’s notice, addressing the concerns of stakeholders from the runway to Wall Street.
