Known Crewmember – LAA/LUS
The Known Crewmember (KCM) program is dependent upon crewmembers demonstrating that we can be trusted to comply with all KCM requirements. In recent weeks, the TSA has found multiple violations of the KCM requirements related to prohibited items. The TSA has served notice to all airlines and workgroups who participate in the KCM program that any crewmember who violates the KCM requirements will lose access to KCM and could jeopardize their participation in the program. Each KCM violation jeopardizes the continuation of the program for all crewmember participants.
To protect your ability to participate in the KCM program, you must abide by the following rules:
- Crewmembers are permitted to bring personal property through the KCM access points as long as it is not on the TSA’s Prohibited Items List (PIL)
- Carriage of another individual’s property through the KCM portal to circumvent screening is strictly prohibited.
- Crewmembers utilizing a KCM portal are subject to random screening.
KCM is a privilege, not a right. The KCM program can be revoked from all of us at any time.
Brussels Update – LAA/LUS
Brussels International Airport (BRU) remains closed for passenger traffic. BRU continues to review its terminal infrastructure, and test temporary check-in facilities and new security measures. At this time, American Airlines plans to restart service from Philadelphia (PHL) to BRU on Friday, April 15, pending direction from Brussels Airport and other authorities.
