NORTH TEXAS -- The ripple effect of the terror attacks in Brussels has been felt worldwide including in North Texas. The attacks have led to an increase in security at U.S. airports, including DFW International and Dallas Love Field. Jose Torres,
"Our security measures are always in place to make sure out traveling public and employees and people that work here, people that travel from here are and feel safe," said Jose Torres, spokesman for the Department of Aviation for the City of Dallas.
Fort Worth-based American Airlines and other U.S. Airlines canceled flights to and from Belgium in response to the attacks.
But airlines aren't the only travel industries showing a heightened awareness following the attacks.
DART spokesman Morgan Lyons released a statement Tuesday morning saying, "We are monitoring the situation and will coordinate with federal officials as needed."
A heavy police presence was visible near several DART stations in Dallas Tuesday.
Roger Dow, U.S. Travel Association President and CEO took it a step further, "Those who would do harm to the Western world are a deranged minority and should be treated as such."
So as the world heals from yet another terror attack, be prepared for “heightened vigilance” from the travel industry in DFW. As the incident in Brussels shows, you can never be too cautious.
