LONDON: A British MP on Wednesday slammed Air China for alleged "racist" travel advice offered to clients visiting London.

The airline's "Wings of China" magazine reportedly provides safety advice to travellers based on the race and nationality of local residents.

"London is generally a safe place to travel, however precautions are needed when entering areas mainly populated by Indians, Pakistanis and black people," the magazine says, according to a photograph published by CNBC.

"We advise tourists not to go out alone at night, and females always to be accompanied by another person when travelling," the magazine adds.
