Governments should take the lead in reviewing how risk assessments for airspace are made following the downing of flight MH17, the head of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) has said.
Airlines Emirates and Lufthansa have called for an international summit to discuss how the industry evaluates risk after the Malaysian Airlines jet was shot down over rebel-held territory in eastern Ukraine.
"No effort should be spared in ensuring that this outrage is not repeated," IATA director general Tony Tyler said.
"Malaysia Airlines [MH17] was a clearly identified commercial jet and it was shot down - in complete violation of international laws, standards and conventions - while broadcasting its identity and presence on an open and busy air corridor at an altitude that was deemed to be safe," Mr Tyler added.
Thousands of online users have taken to social media to call for the victims of the Malaysian airliner crash to be returned to loved ones.
United States intelligence officials admitted that they do not know who fired the surface-to-air missile that downed flight MH17.
