Cathay Pacific on Wednesday said two pilots had been sacked, as the Hong Kong carrier came under pressure from Beijing to clamp down on staff supportive of anti-government rallies.

“Cathay Pacific confirms that two pilots have been terminated in accordance with the terms and conditions of their employment contracts,” the airline said in a statement.

“One is currently involved in legal proceedings. The other misused company information on Flight CX216/12 August.”
