Cathay Pacific Airways said on Saturday that two of its airport employees were sacked for leaking information and a pilot charged with rioting has been removed from flying duties.
The information leaked were the travel arrangements for a Hong Kong police soccer team, who were due to fly to Chengdu.
CEO Rupert Hogg said in a memo to staff the airline would comply with Chinese aviation authority sanctions revealed on Friday.
Hogg acknowledged a number of incidents in recent week involving Cathay employees, which put the company in the spotlight.
“We share the CAAC’s views about the paramount importance of flight safety,” the memo read.
In a previous memo issued earlier on Saturday, the airline told staff to expect increased security checks on its planes and operations on the mainland in the wake of the sanctions.
