Qantas flight attendant facing indecency charge after in-flight incident

A Qantas flight attendant has been charged with indecency, after exposing himself to a female co-worker during a flight.

The 54-year-old man was in court after being charged by the Australian Federal Police late last year.

He is facing one count of committing an act of indecency.

It allegedly took place during a Qantas flight from Perth to Melbourne in April 2019.

The 'distressed' co-worker reported the incident on her return to Perth.

Qantas said he was fired following an internal investigation.

"As soon as this incident was reported we immediately conducted a workplace investigation and terminated his employment," the airline said.

"We have zero tolerance for any form of harassment."

An early planned court appearance was postponed in March this year due to the Covid pandemic.

He could face up to seven years in prison if found guilty.
