Cathay Pacific Airways said Tuesday that the September 18 incident, one of its Boeing 777 and Airbus A330 Dragonair were in the southwest of the same height from the airport in Hong Kong when he got too close, which alarms caused the cabin.
Cathay said in a statement that the pilots responded immediately, with the escalation of Dragonair and Cathay jet plane descends.
The airline said the planes were to one nautical mile (1,850 meters) in the closest and that "there is no risk of collision."
