SHANGHAI, June 15 China's civil aviation
authority has fined Dubai-based carrier Emirates and barred it
from adding new destinations and aircraft in China for six
months after two incidents of "unsafe operations", the state
news agency Xinhua reported on Thursday.
The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) says crew
from the airline were responsible for an April 17 incident in
which an aircraft flew at a wrong height and another on May 18
when a plane temporarily lost contact with air traffic control.
Both happened over China's far western region of Xinjiang,
CAAC fined Emirates, the world's largest long-haul airline,
29,000 yuan ($4,270) and said it had summoned senior officials
from the airline for a meeting, Xinhua reported without further
($1 = 6.7888 Chinese yuan renminbi)
