Air Space disputes in East Asia

Air Space in East Asia is becoming somewhat of a concept as China, Japan, and Taiwan are modifying their air space restrictions and limits. Now, they are frankly overlapping. Since 2009, Japanese aviation authorities have demanded that Taiwanese airliners submit their flight plans to Japan when traveling through the overlapping air zone, Shen said. However, despite having already identified themselves to Japanese authorities, some of these passengers planes are still intercepted by Japanese fighters in the overlapping zone, the CAA head said. Shen said that moves made by the Japanese military have caused grave concern within the CAA because such harassment is extremely dangerous to the safe flights of passenger aircraft. As a result, the Korean government yesterday announced its plans to expand its 62-year-old air defense identification zone (ADIZ), which overlaps with remote islands declared by China and Japan under similar zones. The move, intended to counter Beijing’s unilateral declaration of a newly mapped East China Sea ADIZ on Nov. 23 that incorporates areas claimed by Korea and Japan, may only serve to further escalate tensions regarding air space in a region already riddled with territorial disputes. Korea will expand the southern boundary of its ADIZ to incorporate waters 250 kilometers (155 miles) south of Ieodo, which will also coincide with its flight information region (FIR), a specific airspace set by the International Civil Aviation Organization in which flight information and alert services are provided. An ADIZ that is aligned with the FIR was considered most ideal in the planning process.
