Welcome to the Temporary Web Home of the Teamsters Airline Division!

When it comes to power within the airline industry, the Teamsters Union is second to none. The strength of our 80,000 plus members is bolstered by the support of the over 1.4 million fellow Teamsters, providing strength that no other union can offer.

In the past three years so many airline industry employees have seen the strength and value of being represented by the Teamsters and have joined the Teamsters Airline Division. During this rapid growth we simply outgrew our website. So we are currently building a new Teamster Airline Division website that will make it easier for the Division to serve its members, and to provide the tools and information our members need to stay informed and to participate in the union.

So please continue to visit TeamsterAir.org. For the time being you will be transferred to these pages on Teamster.org. We look forward to you finding a great new site in the near future.
