AFA Testifies on Transportation Security

November 19, 2021 – AFA President Sara Nelson testified before the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security's Subcommittee on Transportation and Maritime Security on Tuesday in a hearing entitled, “On the Frontlines in Turbulent Times: Workforce Perspectives on the State of Transportation Security.”

She spoke to the current threats to aviation security as Flight Attendants on the frontlines are confronting the longest sustained turbulent times in the history of our industry.

"Dealing with a disruptive passenger used to be a rare event and a really bad day at work. Today, Flight Attendants and other aviation workers are aware before every trip, every shift, that as we put on our uniforms we are donning a target for abuse, harassment, and violence. We cannot accept this as the new normal."
