South Korean airlines are to comply with China’s new air defence zone after Seoul reversed its policy and dropped objections.

Korean Air, Asiana and several low-cost airlines yesterday said they had started submitting flight plans to China for aircraft flying through the zone.

China angered the US, Japan and South Korea last month by creating an “air defence identification zone” without advance consultations at a time when Sino-Japanese tensions remain high over a maritime territorial dispute.

The Chinese zone covers much of the East China Sea, including the Japanese-controlled Senkaku Islands, which are also claimed by China where they are known as the Diaoyu. It also overlaps with zones created by Japan and South Korea.

Seoul originally told its airlines not to comply with the Chinese zone, which differs from others by requiring flight plans even when an aircraft is not destined for China. On Wednesday, however, the South Korean transport ministry abandoned that stance, telling airlines they were free to comply if they wished Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways, Japan’s two international carriers, initially complied with the zone, but reversed course under pressure from Tokyo. Yesterday, they said they would continue to flout the Chinese guidelines.

South Korea’s transport ministry cited safety concerns, noting tensions had heightened after Seoul announced it was expanding its own defence zone.

韩国各航空公司将遵循中国新的防空识别区规定,此前韩国政府逆转政策,放弃了反对意见。

大韩航空(Korean Air)、韩亚航空(Asiana Airlines)以及几家低成本航空公司昨天表示,他们已开始为飞过该区域的飞机向中国提交飞行计划。

上个月,在中日关系因海上领土争端而高度紧张之际,中国未经磋商就设立了一个防空识别区,激怒美国、日本和韩国。

中国的防空识别区涵盖了东中国海大片区域,其中包括日本控制的尖阁诸岛(Senkaku Islands)——中国也声称拥有该岛主权,该岛在中国被称为钓鱼岛及其附属岛屿。此外,该识别区还与日本和韩国设立的防空识别区部分重叠。

韩国政府起初要求本国航空公司不遵守中国的防空识别区规定。中国的规定与其他国家不同之处在于,即使飞机目的地不是中国也要求提交飞行计划。然而,本周三韩国国土交通部放弃了这一立场,通知各航空公司可以按照自己的意愿,选择遵守这一识别区规定。日本两大国际航空公司日本航空(Japan Airlines)和全日空(ANA)起初遵守了该识别区的规定,但在日本政府的压力下改变了做法。昨天,他们表示将继续不理睬中国方面的指导原则。

韩国国土交通部提到安全方面的担忧,并指出在韩国政府宣布扩大韩国防空识别区后,紧张局势已然升温。
