The article “Kuwaiti, Malaysian Airlines planes in near collision” which was published by arabianbusiness.com is referred to.
Malaysia Airlines strongly denies that one of its flights to London experienced a near-miss with a Kuwait Airways aircraft over Pakistan airspace on Sunday, 5 April 2015.
Following a Safety Information Bulletin (SIB) issued by EASA early this year, Malaysia Airlines has avoided the Pakistani airspace due to increased risk to flight operation safety.
The airline has demanded that arabianbusiness.com retract the erroneous reporting and to issue a public apology to Malaysia Airlines for irresponsibly publishing such news. Malaysia Airlines will not hesitate to take legal action against any party that publishes baseless allegations that could tarnish the airline’s reputation.
