Updating your Personal Information on Flying Together
November 15, 2019
MEC Safety, Health and Security Committee
As Professional Flight Attendants, we take pride in the work we do and the many efforts we make in being prepared for the unexpected. An essential component in this preparation is always a consideration of our own needs first. As we know, in any emergency situation, every minute counts. Having information available or knowing where to find essential information is the key to emergency preparedness.
Ensuring that our employer is able to respond effectively and immediately when it comes to our personal care while away from home, preparedness should have an equal, if not greater, priority for each of us.
Before leaving on your next pairing, take a few minutes to review the Emergency Contact information you have on file in company records. Ensuring the accuracy of this information can save minutes that matter in any critical situation where the company needs to either contact you or reach your designated emergency contacts quickly.
Review your designated Emergency Contact(s) in Flying Together. Access My Profile from the upper right had corner of the home screen by clicking on your name > Edit My Info > Personal Details > Emergency Contacts. Click the “+” to add a contact or the “>” sigh to edit existing information. Always remember to save any changes or updates.
As an additional precaution, if you’ve recently been married, changed your name or had a new passport issued, ensure that your full name on company records matches the name listed on the passport, including your middle name. To verify/update your information: Flying Together > My Profile (Upper Right Corner) > Edit my Info > Personal Details > Name > Edit or change name to match your passport exactly and submit any requested documentation. Keep in mind that the name in your profile must match the name on your passport. When making changes, you are required to also submit documentation to support the name change as detailed on the page where changes are made.
Finally, ensure your address and telephone contact information listed with the company is accurate. In the event of any emergency situation at or near your home, both the company and AFA will have information necessary to act to ensure your personal safety.
If you have additional questions, please contact your Local Council office for assistance.
