"The Regional Airline Association and our airline members are gratified the US Supreme Court strongly affirmed that airlines and their employees must report security threats without fear of potential legal ramifications. The ability for airline professionals to recognize potential threats and report them to the appropriate authorities is fundamental to the culture of safety and security we have developed over the years, and we are relieved to see these protections upheld.”
