On February 9th, local time, Air New Zealand's flight from Auckland to Shanghai returned to China midway after discovering that the aircraft did not have permission to land in China. Flight number NZ289 took off from Auckland at scheduled time after 11:45 pm local time on the 9th, but after the aircraft flew for four and a half hours, the pilot informed the passenger that the aircraft would fly back to New Zealand.
The passengers on the flight were awakened by the pilot during the flight and the pilot announced that the Chinese authorities did not allow the aircraft to land. According to senior aviation commentator Super-Sideguard, the New Zealand Airlines NZ289 flight registration number for the ZK-NZQ aircraft was not registered in China. This is a technical error. He also said: "The flight back to the telegraph has not been sent to the Chinese side, which means that it is obvious that the problem has suddenly been discovered and returned to the air!
It is understood that after the return of NZ289 on February 10, the on-site coordination staff of New Zealand included a number of Chinese employees, and issued airport catering coupons and airport vouchers worth 200 New Zealand dollars (about 920 yuan) to the passengers. Some passengers have been taken to the hotel by bus, and a few passengers have taken a pillow and blanket to rest at the airport.

Civil aviation regulations in China, the United States and other countries require foreign aircraft in the country to declare in advance.
