Safety, security key for flight attendants during busy holiday season

The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA) said it takes its role in keeping the skies safe seriously

In addition to their role as aviation´s first responders, since September 11th, flight attendants have also become the last line of defense for those on their airplanes.

“It is imperative to listen to Flight Attendant instruction,” said AFA International President Sara Nelson. “We´re there to make your flying experience a good one, but more importantly, we´re there to keep you safe.”

Remember that if you see something, say something. Flight attendants are here to help — trained to respond in emergency situations, command response in the cabin, and protect the crew and passengers in our care.

The Association of Flight Attendants is the world´s largest Flight Attendant union. Nearly 50,000 Flight Attendants come together to form AFA, part of the 700,000-member strong Communications Workers of America (CWA), AFL-CIO.
