In Brief: Cathay Convicted & Fined For Violating Immigration Act (Again)

Cathay Pacific has been fined for allowing a passenger to fly into New Zealand without the proper authorization. Although the incident occurred July 2014, it wasn’t until this week the Hong Kong flag carrier was convicted and fined $6,500 by the Manukau District Court. The penalty stems from failure to comply with the Immigration Act of 2009.

This is the second time Cathay has been tried for violating the Immigration Act. The airline was prosecuted for a similar offense after flying a South African national to Auckland via Hong Kong in 2012.
