PC Air President Peter Chan, describes himself a pioneer. He believes his recruitment techniques are opening doors long closed for all transsexuals hoping to serve in the air.

“I think these people can have many careers, not just in the entertainment business, and many of them have a dream to be an air hostess,” he told AFP. “I just made their dream come true.”

Thailand, a haven for transsexuals, has one of the world’s largest transsexual populations. Operations are cheaply and easily available.

Chan hired six transsexuals from over one hundred applicants. Among the recent transsexual hires is Thanyarat “Film” Jiraphatpakorn, winner of Miss Tiffany 2007, a Thai beauty pageant for transsexuals. (via Consumerist)
