Rerouted Flights Highlight Convenience of Virtual Office Technologies
I just read a Reuters report about a Continental Airlines flight from Houston to Washington that was rerouted on Wednesday to a Greensboro airport after U.S. authorities discovered a “threatening message” in the bathroom.
What’s more disturbing is that it wasn’t the first time. According to U.S. authorities, the threats were discovered two days in a row. On Tuesday, Delta Airlines ran into the same problem with a flight from Atlanta to Paris. That flight was rerouted to Maine after a passenger made threats about a bomb.
“Out of an abundance of caution, the flight is being diverted to Bangor International Airport. TSA and law enforcement will meet the flight upon arrival," the Transportation Security Administration said in a statement.
I’m not trying to breed fear, but these are the types of incidents that we’re seeing more of in today’s world. Between terrorist threats and natural disaster issues like the Icelandic volcano ash that caused flight delays to Europe for days on end, it’s time for companies to look into virtual office technologies to avoid business disruption.
Virtual offices give you access to web conferencing technologies that help you avoid travel, which prevents missed meetings in the face of rerouted flights or other flight delays. You can also save big on hotel expenses, and you can meet with clients more regularly because setting up a web conference is quick and easy.
