SEPANG: The cargo of lithium-ion batteries carried as cargo on MH370 is deemed non-hazardous, said Malaysia Airlines chief executive officer Ahmad Jauhari Yahaya (pic).
He said this when asked about reports of previous air incidents from lithium-ion batteries carried in passengers’ baggage or aircraft cargo.
“Despite the reports, it is deemed non-hazardous cargo, provided it is handled in accordance to very specific and strict guidelines and compliance.
“This is done by all airlines,” Ahmad Jauhari told a press conference here.
To another question on why MAS did not upgrade its satellite services which may have helped in locating the missing plane, Ahmad Jauhari said an update “would not have made any difference in the current situation.”
“The service is only to increase bandwidth for the satellite communications and the current set-up that we have fulfils all our needs.”
