NEW YORK, July 17, /ITAR-TASS/. There were no restrictions on flights in the sector of airspace in Eastern Ukraine where the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 jet crashed Thursday afternoon en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, killing all the 295 people aboard, International Air Transport Association said in a report.
“We extend our deepest sympathies to the families and friends of the passengers and crew of MH17,” IATA said in a statement published in Geneva. “Based on the information currently available it is believed that the airspace that the aircraft was traversing was not subject to restrictions.”
The Boeing 777 of the Malaysian Airlines disappeared from radar screens and crashed on the territory of Ukraine just 50 kilometers away from the Ukrainian-Russian border.
It fell in the Donetsk region near the town of Grabovo, Ukrainian mass media said.
