'a flight attendant moving ecstasy' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this definition defines the answer.

'asia perhaps' is the wordplay.
'asia' becomes 'East' (East is an example).
'perhaps' becomes 'ward' (I can't explain this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
