Thai Airways International has adjusted all flight paths to Europe , avoiding Ukrainian air space.

This follows the strategic incident of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH 17 with 295 passengers on board, which was apparently shot down in eastern Ukraine while flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur .

Thai Airways has immediately announced that all its flights to Europe have been adjusted and Thai passenger aircraft do not pass through Ukrainian air space.

However, flight times will increase by about 30 minutes due to the indirect routes.-VNA
