According to a Channel NewsAsia report, Singapore Airlines has rerouted some of its flights in response to missile tests conducted by North Korea.
While North Korea has claimed that their new weapon has put all parts of the United States within reach of a devastating strike, USA officials say the latest test was a failure since the missile broke apart on re-entry as the airliner witnessed. North Korea joined the ICAO in 1977, but the last time it warned the organization of an impending missile launch was in February 2016.
Unlike other countries, North Korea usually does not announce its missile tests which means they come without warning or known flight path, .
Cathay said Monday that the flight from San Francisco to Hong Kong reported witnessing the apparent re-entry of the ICBM that North Korea launched before dawn Wednesday.
The missile was far from the plane, and the plane's operation was unaffected, Cathay said, adding it had informed other carriers and relevant authorities.
"At the moment, no one is changing any routes or operating parameters". "We remain alert and [will] review the situation as it evolves".
The decision was reportedly made after the North fired a missile into the East Sea on July 28th.
Crew and pilots from Cathay Pacific and Korean Air said they saw a North Korean missile during flights on November 29.
The United Nations aviation agency is not considering the creation of a "no-fly" zone around North Korea because the direction of Pyongyang's tests are not predictable, two sources familiar with the organization's thinking said on Thursday.
Travelers who are concerned should know the chances of an airplane colliding with a missile are extremely low: One safety analyst estimates that it is less than a billion to one.
