Qantas to rectify 'oversight' in reference to Chinese claimed territories

15 January, 2018

CAAC ordered all foreign airlines operating to China to check their respective websites and apps to ensure the correct reference to Chinese claimed territories (Radio Australia, 15-Jan-2018). As part of this, Qantas admitted an "oversight" in listing some Chinese territories, including Taiwan and Hong Kong, as countries on parts of its website, adding it would be "correcting the error". Qantas is the latest international company to admit error in this regard, with 24 foreign airlines reportedly found to be making a similar oversight.
