The two people accused of committing a sexual act on an Air Canada plane did not show up for their scheduled court appearance in Dartmouth on Tuesday.

Jason Chase, 38, and Alicia Lander, 24, are both facing a charge of committing an indecent act.

The sexual act allegedly happened during a January flight. They were stopped by officers after arriving at the Halifax Stanfield International Airport.

In addition, Lander is facing charges of causing a disturbance, assaulting a police officer and mischief. The RCMP told CBC that after Lander was arrested, she was verbally abusive and kicked officers.

They're scheduled to be back in court for a plea on April 1.
