The United Nations' civil aviation body will launch two pilot projects designed to help airlines and states better share information about risks in conflict zones, the organization said on Tuesday, nearly six weeks after a Malaysian airliner was shot down over Ukraine. The plans were announced at the conclusion of a two-day meeting by the International Civil Aviation Organisation's (ICAO) special task force on flights in conflict zones, which has been given the complex task of addressing risks to airliners in conflict zones. The second project, to be piloted by unnamed "key ICAO partners," will establish a new centralized system for the "prompt sharing of conflict zone information." "These recommendations will help to ensure the safety of civilian passengers and crew, no matter what airline they are flying on or where they are flying,” said David McMillan, chairman of the task force, in a statement.
