TAIPEI (Reuters) - Leading Taiwanese carrier Eva Airways Corp will change flight paths to avoid flying over Ukraine airspace in response to the crash of a Malaysia Airlines jetliner in the area, the company said Friday.
"Our planes will avoid entering Ukraine airspace effective immediately," a representative of the company said. "This will remain in effect indefinitely."
The representative said this will affect the paths of 20 round-trip flights.
Fellow Taiwanese carrier China Airlines Ltd said that their flights do not routinely enter Ukraine airspace and that flight paths have not changed.
