Aviation leaders seek new safety mandate after deadly 2014

MONTREAL (Reuters) - Aviation leaders will try to secure a mandate to implement new safety standards when they meet next week after a string of high-profile accidents around the world made 2014 the deadliest year for commercial airlines in almost a decade. Efforts to adopt new standards for global plane tracking and co-operation on the risks of flying over conflict zones will dominate the meeting on safety in Montreal from Feb. 2-5, weeks ahead of the anniversary of the disappearance of flight MH370, the Malaysian Airlines jet with 239 people on board. #Business #facebook #Brazil #France #Arabic #Aviation #Russia #Argentina #Mexico #author #opinion

Australia wants clear UN rules on extended searches after MH370

TORONTO (Reuters) - Australia, which has led a nearly year-long hunt for a missing Malaysian airliner, wants the United Nations' aviation agency to issue clear guidelines on who should be responsible for such searches once rescue efforts are called off. Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, with 239 mostly Chinese people on board, was en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing last March when it went missing in the world's greatest aviation mystery. More than two dozen countries have been involved in the air, sea and underwater search for the Boeing 777. #India #Japan #Brazil #France #Australia #Arabic #markets #Argentina #Mexico #author #australian #opinion
