KCM Is a Privilege, Spread the Word!

Date: April 13, 2018
Type: AFA Article

The continued success of the KCM program depends heavily upon all Crew Members demonstrating that they can be trusted to comply with all related requirements. In recent weeks, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has brought to our attention a number of violations of the KCM requirements. We must be aware and ever vigilant that such conduct can jeopardize the privilege that Flight Attendants enjoy by participating in the program and consequently, the entire Known Crew Member (KCM) program.


Therefore, we urge Flight Attendants to review the following program  rules upon which our continued access to these dedicated security portals rely. Details of the KCM policy may be found in the E-lines publication dated April 4, 2018 and on the TSA website.
