Flight Attendants’ Expects Biden Admin To Extend Airline Mask Mandate Beyond March 18
The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA), the nation’s largest flight attendants’ union, says it expects the Biden administration will continue to extend its mask mandate for air travel beyond the current March 18 deadline.
The association, representing 50,000 workers, shared the news in a statement with Bloomberg.
“We have every expectation that the mask mandate will be extended for the near term,” the AFA said in a statement to Bloomberg.
“The conditions in aviation are the same. Our youngest passengers do not yet have access to the vaccine,” the statement added.
