New Thai airline to hire transsexuals

THAILAND - THAI transsexuals were overjoyed as new airline P.C. Air on Monday took air hostess job applications from 'third sex' candidates at Bangkok's Esplanade shopping mall.

Among the successful applicants was Miss Tiffany 2007 winner Thanyarat 'Film' Jiraphatpakorn.
P.C. Air executive Peter Shan said the company had seen the potential of transsexuals to work as hostesses.
After passing the preliminary round, the transsexuals will undergo training along with female air-hostesses and will have a 'third sex' name tag pinned to their uniform to avoid immigration issues, Mr Shan explained.
The first batch of successful candidates consisted of 17 women, 10 men and three transsexuals.
Miss Tiffany 2007 winner Ms Thanyarat, 23, said she was overjoyed to get the chance she had longed for.
'At first I thought they would just take applications but not actually recruit us, as happened at other places before,' she said. -- THE NATION/ANN
