Sexual harassment within the airline industry

EurECCA, your voice in Europe, is currently researching the problem of sexual harassment within the airline industry, from both passengers and colleagues.  We are hoping to gain insights on the scale of the issue and how the problem could be addressed, so we invite all European cabin crew to have their say, voice their concerns and to share experiences.  We encourage everyone to complete this short survey, whether or not you have experienced any degree of sexual harassment.  All responses are anonymous; however if you wish to share your experiences you will have the opportunity to do so – and this can be “on” or “off the record”; the choice is yours.

Important note: for the purpose of this survey we are defining sexual harassment as the following:

Sexual harassment is unwanted behaviour of a sexual nature which:

  • violates your dignity
  • makes you feel intimidated, degraded or humiliated
  • creates a hostile or offensive environment

You don't need to have previously objected to someone's behaviour for it to be considered unwanted.
