SEOUL, July 18 (Reuters) - South Korea's two major airlines said on Friday they had stopped flying over Ukraine air space since March 3 because of security concerns.

Korean Air Lines Co Ltd and Asiana Airlines Inc both said they had changed flight paths to avoid flying over Ukraine since the same date.
