3.17.21 – SJO Incident

Wednesday, March 17, 2021

Yesterday, a crew in SJO was robbed as they drove from the hotel to the airport. The crew was unharmed, albeit shaken up from the incident. Their electronic devices were stolen.

After a preliminary investigation by SJO station leadership, Corporate Security, local authorities, and other security partners, there is no evidence that the perpetrators deliberately targeted American Airlines Flight Attendants.

As a precaution, crew transport to and from the airport will be conducted through unmarked or discreetly marked vans. Additionally, vans will begin using an alternate route.

APFA Safety & Security is working closely with AA Corporate Security to ensure crew safety in SJO.

In Solidarity,
