08:19 EDTUALFAA issues NOTAM restricting U.S. operations from flying over Syria
The Federal Aviation Administration issued a new Notice To Airmen restricting U.S. operators from flying in the Damascus Flight Information Region, which includes all of Syria. The FAA said, "This replaces the current NOTAM in place that strongly advises U.S. operators against flying in that airspace and requires them to contact the FAA before they operate in that airspace. Based on an updated assessment of the risk associated with such operations and the lack of any requests from operators wishing to fly in this airspace, we believe it prudent to prohibit U.S. operators from flying into, out of, and over Syria. The ongoing armed conflict and volatile security environment in Syria poses a serious potential threat to civil aviation. Armed extremist groups in Syria are known to be equipped with a variety of anti-aircraft weapons which have the capability to threaten civilian aircraft. Opposition groups have successfully shot down Syrian military aircraft using these anti-aircraft weapon systems during the course of the conflict. Opposition elements have previously warned civilian air carriers against providing service to Syria. Due to the presence of anti-aircraft weapons among the extremist groups and ongoing fighting in various locations throughout Syria, there is a continuing significant potential threat to civil aviation operating in Syrian airspace." Publicly traded companies in the airline industry include American Airlines (AAL), Delta Air Lines (DAL), JetBlue (JBLU), Southwest (LUV) and United Continental (UAL).

05:57 EDTBHPBHP Billiton reports FY14 underlying profit $13.45B vs. $12.21B last year
BHP said capital and exploration expenditure is expected to decline to $14.5Bin the 2015 financial year and be no more than $14B should the proposed demerger be implemented. "By maintaining an internal focus and concentrating investment in our major basins we believe an average rate of return of greater than 20% is achievable for our favoured development options," the company said. It added, "With robust volume growth and further productivity gains expected, we remain confident in the outlook for the Group. On this basis, we increased our full-year progressive base dividend by 4% to 121 US cents per share for an Underlying payout ratio of 48%. We will seek to steadily increase or at least maintain the dividend per share in US dollar terms at each half-yearly payment following the demerger, implying a higher payout ratio."
