Singapore Airlines reroutes flights for North Korea missile consistent testing

Published on : Friday, December 8, 2017

Singapore AirlinesSingapore Airlines has changed its travel route of some of the flights travelling over the troubled Korean peninsula, as North Korea is threatening for missile tests in the Sea of Japan.

 

 

 

The decision comes after Pyongyang’s continuous missile tests in the Sea of Japan disregarding international opposition.

 

 

 

The world-renowned carrier changed the flying route of its Seoul- Los Angeles flights since last July as a safety precaution against the North Korean missile tests. The move was made as a response to the missile launch by North Korea into the Sea of Japan on 27th July.

 

 

 

A spokesperson from the Singapore Airlines said that Singapore Airlines is aware of the reports on the sighting of the North Korean missiles and is closely monitoring the situation…currently, Singapore Airlines flight routings do not transverse in the vicinity of the missile trajectory as they have taken earlier steps to avoid the northern part of the Sea of Japan…the safety of the passengers and crew are the utmost priority and they will re-route our flights when necessary.

 

 

 

While tensions around the world about the possibility of the escalation of conflict in the Korean peninsula is pretty widespread, the ongoing missile tests by the North Korea regime is even more worrying for carriers conducting service across the North Pacific region.

 

 

 

The countries are required to give warnings about their upcoming missile tests as per International agreements.

 

 

 

The International Civil Aviation Organization in October had condemned the missile tests as it threatened the safety of commercial flights but it had little effect on the North Korean regime.
