China Air Transport Association (CATA) has put four domestic logistics firms on its no-fly list. The firms — Shanghai YTO, Yunda Express, Huixing and Qihang – will have to stop their airfreight activities till their business procedures improve. The ban came because the courier firms were apparently guilty of security flaws that resulted in a fire that took place in a storage bin of flight CZ6524 on October 22 after the plane landed at Dalian Zhoushuizi Airport.
