Chinese airline sparks row with ?racist? travel guide to London

Posted by kuailai99 on September 13th, 2018

A Chinese airline has caused outrage after warning travellers to avoid visiting areas of London “populated by Indians, Pakistanis and black people”.

Air China, the country’s national airline, printed the advice in its inflight magazine Wings of China. 上海到新加坡

The guide also added: “We advise tourists not to go out alone at night, and females always to be accompanied by another person when travelling.”The row began after Haze Fan, a Beijing-based producer for CNBC, spotted the advice while travelling to the UK with her fiancé who is from London.

She took a photograph of the text and posted it to Twitter asking Mayor of London Sadiq Khan what he thought of it.

Two Labour MPs for London constituencies with significant proportions of ethnic minority residents have urged the Chinese ambassador to the UK, Liu Xiaoming, to obtain an apology for their constituents.
