Photo 20 Jan 66 notes PC Air has begun to hire transgendered air hostesses. The president (Peter Chan) of PC Air has done so as he “wants Thailand to give more rights to ‘members of the third sex’.”  PC Air is so named because its founder and president is Peter Chan –  the title does not allude to political correctness. Chan, a property  developer, began PC Air last year and immediately confronted what he  calls a “question of human rights” in this generally open-minded but  still socially conservative nation of 69 million.
"Ladyboys [term used in Thailand] in  Thailand don’t have good jobs," Chan said from PC Air’s 34th-floor  Bangkok HQ, where crystalline chandeliers and white bearskin rugs  distract from the sprawling view of the city below.  "They work as dancers or entertainers or in shops, because society doesn’t accept them in other jobs." Emblazoned across each PC Air jet is the company motto –"I believe it’s my way".  Chan hopes Thailand, and the world, will eventually accept transgender people – known here as kathoey – in everyday life.  “This is the ladyboys’ dream,” he said. “Everybody has to have it [their way], it’s a human right.”  His airline was also the first in Thailand to employ an FtM pilot.
