Nys travelers should check their travel status before travelling to and from this week’s United Nations General Assembly session, according to the National Transportation Safety Board.
The NTSB says that because the air travel advisory was placed in place ahead of the Paris attacks, it has the authority to issue travel advisements.
It is not clear what the impact will be on air travel, though some airlines may cancel flights.
A total of 16,000 people from 14 countries will attend the United Nations on Tuesday.
There is no word on how many flights are canceled, but flights will be limited to a maximum of three per airline.
Here are some key details from the NTSB’s advisory: The National Transportation Security Board is urging passengers traveling to and through Paris and New York City to be alert and vigilant and not to disregard security warnings and take any actions that might cause you harm.
In the wake of the deadly terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, the United States has undertaken an extensive effort to develop a comprehensive national travel plan, which includes a national strategy, a coordinated response plan, and a detailed itinerary of planned and completed travel.
This guidance will help airlines and passengers plan for the potential impacts of these terrorist events, as well as the safety of those traveling to, from, or between these areas.
For example, the Federal Aviation Administration has set a series of safety standards for passengers who travel on airplanes, including minimum weight and height restrictions, minimum size and dimensions of checked baggage, maximum length of a checked bag, maximum speed of a passenger, maximum distance between planes, maximum altitude, and maximum height above the ground.
Additionally, the National Security Council has issued a statement that expresses its profound concern over the terrorist attacks and the terrorist threat they pose to our nation and the world.
We urge our airlines to consider the safety implications of any planned and planned-to-be-traveled flights.
The Federal Aviation Authority is offering additional security advice to airline passengers.
As of Monday afternoon, the FAA is asking airline passengers to take precautions when flying to and traveling from the United Kingdom, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Ireland, Canada, and the United Arab Emirates, and to monitor their personal security devices, including their credit cards, travel history, and cell phones.
Travelers should also review and heed local and international travel advisory guidelines for each destination, including information on travel security, travel conditions, and safety measures.
