PC Air’s ladyboys to be Thailand’s queens of the skies

Freshly-minted Thai regional airline PCAir won’t make its first flight for several months yet, but here at WoWasis, we applaud them for staffing up with ladyboys in its effort to have a diversified work crew. Perhaps the highest profile ladyboy hired so far is Miss Tiffany Universe 2007 winner Thanyarat Jirapatpakorn. The Bangkok Post notes that of the 30 crew hired so far, 3 are transgender. While ladyboys are ubiquitous in Thailand and work for scores of companies in public-facing capacities, it’s unusual for a company to make a public policy statement on hiring them, as PC Air has done. 

PC Air intends to make its inaugural flight in March, 2011, but has yet to make its routing and schedule public.
