  • North Korea missile prompted Singapore Air plane re-route

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, stated a report in Channel NewsAsia.

North Korea's rocket test in September reportedly also led Scandinavian and Swiss Airlines to re-route their flights into Japan.

North Korea routinely fails to follow that rule and has ignored several letters from the ICAO urging it to inform airline officials of its plan to launch missiles.

"Currently, our flight routings do not transverse in the vicinity of the missile trajectory as we have taken earlier steps to avoid the northern part of the Sea of Japan", the airline told Business Insider in a statement.

On July 28 an Air France flight from Tokyo to Paris, carrying 323 people, passed just 60 miles from the splashdown site of a North Korean missile test, roughly five to ten minutes after it hit the water.

Tillerson: Ukraine - biggest obstacle to normal Russian Federation ties
Tillerson insisted the USA could never overlook Russia's invasion of Ukraine and "attempted annexation" of the Crimean peninsula. He also made clear that Washington did not accept Russia's seizure of the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine in 2014.

"At the moment, no one is changing any routes or operating parameters".

"We do take the matter seriously and are monitoring the situation very closely and will reroute our flight paths where necessary", a Cathay Pacific spokesperson added.

The crew of the Cathay Pacific Airways flight says they witnessed the rogue nation's latest weapon break apart and explode as it traveled through the sky early Wednesday morning on November 29.

The test-launch raised tension further with South Korea and the United States, who on Monday began their largest ever joint air exercise, which the North has branded an "all-out provocation". North Korea likely chooses splashdown points for each stage that avoid airline routes, said Vipin Narang, an expert on nuclear strategy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
