Terrorism has had major effects on the tourism industry because of media amplification of terrorist acts. In the modern socially constructed world, the media
have a strong influence on risk perception among tourists and consequently a strong influence on the tourism industry. In that context, the way that a terrorist act is presented in the mass media will shape the perceptions of potential tourists to certain tourist destinations, countries and whole regions and therefore influence the tourism industry. After serious terrorist acts and their aftermath, tourism crisis managers in the tourism industry must employ creative and skillful crisis communication to restore the image of stability in tourist destinations affected by terrorist attacks.
