Malaysia Airlines is trying to arrange safe access for relatives of victims to the site in eastern Ukraine where its Boeing 777 airliner crashed killing all 298 on board, a spokeswoman for Amsterdam airport said today.
"The relatives, a few hundred of them, are currently being housed in a hotel at Schiphol," she said.
The airline's European head yesterday said it was sending a Boeing 747 to Amsterdam to take relatives to the Ukrainian capital Kiev.
Ukrainian officials have complained that rebels around the crash site are hampering access. – Reuters, July 18, 2014.
