Airlines scrub 'Taiwan' from websites


All international carriers serving Taiwan capital Taipei have complied with a demand from China to remove the word "Taiwan" from their websites. 

The Chinese government in April told all airlines to strike references to Taiwan as an independent territory. The request came in accordance with China's "One-China Policy," which the White House derided. 

China's deadline was today, and all major U.S. carriers now list only Taipei and its airport code on their websites. The Chinese newspaper People's Daily reports that all 44 airlines targeted in China's request have made the changes.
