A day after the Malaysian Airline Flight 17 was shot down, air traffic is being redirected around Ukraine. The new routes are taking planes to the eastern border region of Ukraine, over the Russian side, which is not far from the conflict zone.
For U.S. airlines, the Federal Aviation Administration has barred flights above Crimea and the area of Ukraine where the plane was shot down. The European air traffic control agencies are starting to do the same, according to Mashable.
