Both countries may close their airspace at any time. On the other side The airlines must decide to take the risk to fly over these areas or not. Certainly with the memory of the Malaysian Airlines flight in mind.

This will certainly result in flight cancellations, delays, or longer flights requiring additional kerosene and therefore less freight.
We are following the case closely.
