We prove that Killing horizons in massive IIA supergravity preserve an even number of supersymmetries, and that their symmetry algebra contains an sl(2,) subalgebra, confirming the conjecture of Gran et al (2013 J. High Energy Phys. JHEP11(2013)104). We also prove a new class of Lichnerowicztype theorems for connections of the spin bundle whose holonomy is contained in a general linear group.
