SEOUL — South Korea’s Korean Air Lines and Asiana Airlines are canceling flights to Taiwan for one or two days because of Chinese military exercises in the area, local media reported on Thursday.

Korean Air canceled flights between Incheon and Taiwan on Friday and Saturday, while Asiana Airlines canceled Friday’s direct flight to Taiwan and will monitor the situation, news agency News1 and other local media reported.

China launched unprecedented live-fire military drills in six areas that ring Taiwan on Thursday, a day after a visit by U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi to the self-ruled island that Beijing regards as its sovereign territory.
