A new independent body which decides which flight paths are safe needs to be created following the MH17 disaster, the boss of Malaysia Airlines has said.
The company said MH17's flight path had been approved by the International Civil Aviation Organisation and the European airspace service provider Eurocontrol ahead of take-off.
Huge Dunleavy, the company's commercial director, said individual airlines should no longer be responsible for decisions on which territories are safe to fly over, but could no longer rely on existing bodies for the information.
"Ultimately, we need one body to be the arbiter of where we can fly," he wrote in the Sunday Telegraph.
"For the sake of passenger and crew safety we need to insist on a higher level of authority."
The mother of the three Australian children killed on flight MH17 told a memorial service her "arms would always be reaching for them."
A woman has apparently posted pictures of herself on social media with mascara looted from the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 crash site.
A large section of plane wreckage and everyday carry-on items like chocolates remain scattered among the wild flowers at the crash site.
