first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: N.J A Christchurch court is said to have handed Jetstar Airways a $6,500 fine after a Melbourne check-in clerk changed a passenger’s nationality, allowing the person to enter New Zealand without a visa.Earlier this week the Christchurch District Court heard that a Chinese woman was travelling from Melbourne to New Zealand on 27 January 2011, The Press reported.Because she was citizen of China she required a visa but because she had not applied for one the computer flashed a notification to the Jetstar check-in staff member to contact Immigration New Zealand.The passenger’s nationality was then altered from China to Switzerland which allowed her to board the aircraft and enter New Zealand without proper documentation. The carrier explained that check-in staff had “received the directive but through she had entered the incorrect country code, so she amended the country code to CH [China]”.Although the woman boarded the flight without notice she was eventually granted a visa to enter the country.The court’s Judge David Saunders said the fine was a message “to be careful with the processing of passengers at overseas airports” and noted that it was the carrier’s first conviction in New Zealand. last_img read more
