airhostess assaulted The woman had repeatedly complained to the Air India Express company which chose to ignore them, it was alleged: Screengrab

Thiruvananthapuram: In a shocking revelation, an air hostess working with Air India Express (AIE) has alleged that the skies are a site for constant sexual abuse.

The Thiruvananthapuram native, who has now resigned after her repeated complaints seeking action against a pilot were ignored by the company, has filed a complaint at the Valiyathura police station.

The woman, speaking to Manorama News, said the pilot used to frequently make unwelcome sexual advances at her. He allegedly used opportunities while at work in the air and even after work, pestering her on social networks.

The air hostess said she had to endure abuse over a prolonged period of time while at work.

The accused pilot also made it a point to humiliate the woman on several occasions in the presence of her colleagues.

The woman said she was the not the sole victim of abuse. The woman said several complaints against the accused pilot, who reportedly attempted to molest her in the cockpit, were ignored by the company.
