Calls for international meeting to discuss air threats

The head of Emirate's Airlines has called for an international meeting to discuss air threats posed by conflicts in light of the MH17 disaster.

Tim Clark said air carriers needed to be more involved in giving their passengers guidance on where it is safe to fly.

He told Reuters: "The international airline community needs to respond as an entity, saying this is absolutely not acceptable and outrageous and that it won't tolerate being targeted in internecine regional conflicts that have nothing to do with airlines."
