Foreign Airlines Warned After Marriott Geography Blunder
China’s aviation ministry has issued orders for all foreign airlines to check their websites for any listings of Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau or Tibet as “countries,” and rectify the listings if necessary.
The warning comes after global hotel giant Marriott International Inc. made headlines last week after its website was found to refer to those Chinese territories as countries in a recent customer survey.
