KCM Compliance Reminders

KCM Compliance Reminders

October 7, 2022 - KCM is a privilege, not a right. It’s important that all crewmembers abide by the rules of this program in order to protect your ability to participate in the Known Crewmember program.

AFA worked with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to ensure that Flight Attendants would be included in this vital program, which allows participating crewmembers to access sterile areas of the airport through a separate crew screening.

TSA continues to see a steady rate of KCM compliance violations in three main categories.

  • Prohibited Items: The items that you can or cannot bring through the secured area may be found in the Prohibited Items List on the TSA website. The only exemption allowed for Flight Attendants while in uniform is from the 3-1-1 Liquids, Aerosols and Gels rule. Every Flight Attendant should check to ensure that they have not inadvertently left a prohibited item in their belongings before they bring them to the KCM entry point.
  • Other Person’s Property: KCM may be used for the crewmember and their personal property only.
  • Personal International Travel: KCM regulations explicitly prohibit use for personal international travel.

Your cooperation will strengthen the KCM program for the benefit of all. Read more.
