Airlines are moving flight crews to hotels outside of central Washington D.C. to avoid the protests at the U.S. Capitol, airlines and a major labor union said.

American Airlines started booking crews overnighting in Washington to airport hotels on Tuesday and plans to do the same on Wednesday at a minimum, said Curtis Blessing, an American Airlines spokesman.

United Airlines flight attendants will also be staying at airport hotels this week, while Alaska Airlines were told to avoid downtown Washington D.C., said Taylor Garland, spokeswoman for the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, which represents cabin crews at those airlines and more than a dozen others.

United crews overnighting in Atlanta are also staying at airport hotels this week.

Airlines had moved crews out of central Washington D.C. on Election Day because of concerns about demonstrations and potential logistical issues.
