ANA Holdings Inc. and Japan Airlines Co., the nation's largest carriers, flew through China's newly declared air defense identification zone without notifying the country after Japan asked airlines to stop giving flight information to China.

ANA's flight from Tokyo touched down in Taipei at 1:11 p.m. Japan time, said Yoichi Uchida, a spokesman for the company. JAL's flight from Osaka touched down in Taipei at 12:24 p.m., Kazunori Kidosaki, an airline spokesman, said.

The Japanese government on Tuesday told its domestic airlines to stop providing flight information to China, which has mandated that planes give details when flying through the new ADIZ it unilaterally declared. Japan has denounced the move and the U.S. military flew two unarmed B-52 bombers into the area, which includes the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea that are controlled by Japan but claimed by China, which calls them the Diaoyu.
