PORTLAND – The State Department is issuing a travel alert warning U.S. Citizens of “potential risks” to travel in Europe.
This warning comes after the chaos and terrorist attack broke out in Belgium.
The bombings happened at Brussels International Airport and then an hour later at a subway station in the city.
Here at home Portland Jetport’s marketing manager said protecting an entire airport is nearly impossible, but they are stepping up security including bomb-sniffing dogs and more police presence.
Travel agents say this is the time of year when people book European vacations.
AAA recommends anyone traveling in Europe should get to airport 3 hours early keep passport on you at all times, and always be aware of your surroundings.
They say if you don’t feel safe.. Then don’t go or get travel insurance — it covers a terrorist attack.
