International Air Transport Association (IATA) chief Tony Tyler today insisted flying is safe despite a succession of three tragedies in one week.

"With three tragedies in such quick succession, many people will, understandably, be asking questions about aviation safety. Our number one priority is safety. And despite the events of the past seven days, flying is safe," he said.
His comment followed the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 and the crashes of TransAsia Airways Flight GE222 and Air Algerie Flight  AH5017.
