The first ever ‘Transgender Airline’ has suspended services due to lack of funding which has left passengers stranded in South Korea as a result.
“The airline informed the Department of Civil Aviation on Friday that they cannot operate their charter flights due to business problems,” Thai Deputy Transport Minister Chadchart Sittipunt told AFP. “So it will suspend its services.”
PC Air hit the headlines earlier this year when it hired four transgender cabin attendants in a highly publicised recruitment drive to operate charter flights from Bangkok to Hong Kong and other Asian destinations.
But the privately owned carrier drew less welcome attention last week when its only aircraft was unable to take off from Seoul’s Incheon Airport because the company could not pay its service and fuel fees.
There is no word if the carrier will try to resume operations in the future.
