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.
