Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific issued a warning to its staff that they could be fired if they support or participate in protests, when the company is under Beijing’s pressure.

The warning was issued following the introduction of a new regulation by China’s aviation regulator that required Cathay Pacific to provide a list of its staff on flights to mainland or using the country’s airspace.

Beijing has informed the company that its employees who have been involved in protests in Hong Kong over the past two months will be banned from flying to the mainland.

The company previously announced that it would comply with the regulations by citing business interests in China and the need to comply with local regulations.

However, in a message to staff on Monday, its chief executive Rupert Hogg reiterated that Cathay Pacific’s employees also face disciplinary action, in the wake of pro-democracy protests.

“Cathay Pacific Group does not compromise on illegal activities. Legs who support or participate in illegal protests will have the consequences of disciplinary action.
