Singapore Airlines cancels flight connections to Taiwan
Choice linked to "increasing airspace restriction" due to military exercises
Air carrier Singapore Airlines has cancelled all flights to and from the island of Taiwan. A decision inextricably linked to Chinese military exercises conducted by China's Navy and Air Force in the Taiwan Strait. This has led to "increasing airspace restrictions" imposed by the maneuvering of warships and aircraft, which could become dangerous for airliners.
The decision came after the second day of exercises by Beijing's military forces kicked off in recent hours. Planes and warships would also cross the "centerline" of the Taiwan Strait. It happened around 5:00 am Italian time. A muscular response to US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taipei.
