Qantas websites are being changed to refer to Taiwan as a Chinese territory after pressure from Beijing.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has expressed concern about the decision to change the Qantas website to refer to Taiwan as a Chinese territory after pressure from Beijing.

Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce revealed on Monday that the airline is in the process of making the change after China's aviation regulator in April issued a May 25 deadline to more than 40 airlines to make the change.
