Employers attach more and more importance to safety and security during business travel for their employees and take their Duty of Care seriously. However, while most travelers would welcome a proactive and well-informed safety management, they rarely see their company up for the task. Hence, those who care, advise and look after their own employees in business and even private travel, benefit in return from reputational gains and can make safety a clear advantage in the competition for the brightest minds and talent.

What you WON’T find in our Toolbox? A Glass Bowl
We work with a wide range of forecasting and scenario building methods. Still, we cannot predict exactly when an attack or the escalation of peaceful protests will happen exactly at a particular place. However, our unique, award-winning and constantly evolved analytical approach combines
- An in-depth assessment all of a country's active and historical conflicts – worldwide. Our database includes more than 1,800 political disputes between and within states as well as those that are no longer (or not yet) violent.
- A specific calculation of the actual security risk at the sub-national level - because stability is seldom evenly distributed in the country - as well as valid expectation values for the future.
Changes in the Security Environment? We keep you updated and help you to recognize them immediately
Interpretation of the Values
The CONIAS subnational safety data (SUSAFE) is interval-scaled (0-10), which makes data measurable and comparison easy. Together with a specific color code, the scale also functions as a warning system. Thus, SUSAFE informs clients about current developments and indicates whether minor adjustments would be sufficient or if large-scale measures (evacuation of personnel, alternative delivery routes) should be taken. Because general recommendations for action grasp neither the complexity of political realities on the ground nor of a supply chain network, the scale provides predominantly an orientation framework. Hence, we invite you to discuss changes with our experts and make use of our consulting formats, to elaborate which adjustments are necessary and helpful to meet your specific needs and interests. We highly recommend a long-term use of the SUSAFE data through our update services in order to stay informed about local dynamics.

Use Case: Safe Travels - Making the Most out of a Stopover
When traveling for business or pleasure, you can often find cheaper fares if you choose a connecting or even stopover flight. In many cases especially for longer distances, there is no non-stop option in the first place. Travelers can make the most out of this now and benefit from steadily growing dining, shopping opportunities as well as the chance to pay a short visit to the city center. This is especially the case as also political conditions are improving – several states have started to offer stopover visa – and many airlines advertise stopovers with free accommodation and sightseeing tours.
In order to benefit from this trend, being it as a traveler or service provider, you need to be aware of the security situation on the ground as well – before you go aboard! This is especially the case as the ten fastest growing airports of the past decade are to be found in countries outside of the Western Hemisphere, where political conditions are not always stable and can be unpredictable.
We have assessed political stability and risk at the 30 busiest airports worldwide – and it becomes clear that physical safety and passenger volume go along quite well. You want to know, how the other 18,000 commercial airports pass our test? Then get in touch with us today an find out more about our layover safety solutions.
