Taiwan Reference: Airlines Yield To Chinese Pressure

Collection StoriaBusiness

American Airlines, Delta and Cathay Pacific have become the latest carriers to change how they refer to Taiwan online, bowing to pressure from China.

Beijing set July 25 as a deadline for companies and airlines to remove references to Taiwan as anything but a Chinese territory on their websites, according to the BBC.

The US carriers just lists Taipei, but Cathay refers to it as part of China.

Taiwan has been self-ruling since 1949, but China regards it as a breakaway province to be reunited one day.
