PETALING JAYA: Malaysia Airlines (MAS) confirms reports which stated flight MH370 had made an emergency landing in Nanning, China is false.
"We have checked with ground control and it’s not true,” said Fuad Sharuji, VP Operation Control on Saturday.
He said during the last reported contact at 35,000 feet, around two hours from KLIA, there was no call from the crew or notification from the tower that they were having any kind of difficulties.
“As of now, we still have no clue on where it is right now” he told CNN at 10.45am.
MAS is holding a press conference at 11am.
A report by China's Xinhua news agency said contact was lost with the lane while it was over Vietnamese airspace.
Xinhua also quoted Chinese aviation authorities saying the plane did not enter China's air traffic control sphere.
