Senate passes FAA Reauthorization Bill.
The Senate passed The Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Reauthorization Bill on Friday (21 November).
The bill contains a provision to certify flight attendants in their safety role onboard the aircraft. Under the law, all current flight attendants will be certified upon passage of the legislation. The FAA has up to one year to provide flight attendants with proof of their certification and up to 120 days to provide certification to new flight attendants after they have successfully passed their required FAA training.
The bill also creates a study of aircraft air quality problems. However, it does not include the creation of a basic, mandatory flight attendant security training programme for airlines to follow.
