Delta Air Lines apologises to China for listing Taiwan, Tibet, as countries

Delta Air Lines has apologised to China for listing Taiwan and Tibet as countries on its website, saying it recognizes the seriousness of the issue.

China on Friday had demanded an “immediate and public apology” from Delta Air Lines.

Civil Aviation Administration of China said on its website on Friday it would require all foreign airlines operating routes to China to conduct a comprehensive investigation of their websites, apps and customer-related information and “strictly comply with China’s laws and regulations to prevent a similar thing from happening”.

Visitors to Delta’s complaint and comment section on its Chinese website could select Tibet and Taiwan as countries which they were from, as of Friday morning in China.

The Tibet option had been removed as of 4 p.m. (0800 GMT) China time.
