KUALA LUMPUR- The search area is being expanded. As the search for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 is generating no major results, the search area is being expanded. The ongoing investigation is continuing as well.
There have been concerns over passengers flying on stolen passports, and there are allegations coming forward as speculation continues.
Passenger’s Families Questioning Process
Malaysia Airlines has issued a statement in the effort to clarify rumours.
This statement is in reference to the many queries on the alleged five (5) passengers who checked-in but did not board MH370 on 8 March 2014 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing despite having valid tickets to travel.
Malaysia Airlines wishes to clarify that there were four (4) passengers who had valid booking to travel on flight MH370, 8 March 2014, but did not show up to check-in for the flight.
As such, the issue of off-loading unaccompanied baggage did not arise, as the said four passengers did not check in for the flight. Hence, the above claim is untrue.
Please note translation for this statement to Chinese language is in progress.
