The identity of the crew flying to or over the mainland airspace will not be accepted without verification. By next Thursday, Cathay Pacific will also submit to the mainland authorities measures to strengthen internal supervision and enhance flight safety and security. The Civil Aviation Administration will implement the warning requirements for Cathay Pacific to be supervised and handled in accordance with the law and regulations.
