Quotes

"It is reassuring that the UN aviation body and airlines accept that there is a problem with the lack of clear, uniform rules and information guiding pilots on when they should not fly over conflict areas. What we need now is action from the working group. The flawed current system allowed 298 innocent passengers, pilots and crew to become targets in a war and pilots want to see a solid and serious solution to stop this ever happening again. We will be asking the BritishBritish Government to lead the way and urgently push for a safety-first approach that would protect British passengers whatever airline they are flying with and wherever they are travelling."
...the global demand cannot be solved by one company or in one region of the world," said Sherry Carbary, vice-president of Boeing Flight Services. "This is a global issue that can only be solved by all of the parties involved – airlines, aircraft and training equipment manufacturers, training delivery organisations, regulatory agencies and educational institutions around the world."
Jeff Poole, director general of the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (Canso) said: "The downing of Flight MH17 raises vital questions about the safety of aircraft over conflict zones."
"Pilots need to know when they plot their flight paths that the guidance on safe areas is independent of any interests other than flight safety."
