PETALING JAYA: A fire broke out at the Malaysia Airlines avionics workshop in Subang.
This was the latest in a series of unfortunate events for the airline following the disappearance of Flight MH370 on March 8.
MAS said no one was injured in the fire which occurred at about 4pm on Wednesday.
The fire was minor and was brought under control immediately, said the airline in a press statement.
MAS also said that all its facilities were equipped with state-of-the-art safety equipment.
“Safety in the workplace is always a top priority for Malaysia Airlines,” the statement read.
The workshop was where avionics components on the airline’s aircraft were repaired.
News of the fire had earlier been highlighted by former Wangsa
Maju MP Wee Choo Keong in his blog.
He had asked if the fire could be an act of sabotage in view of the MH370 incident.
“What caused the fire and what documents or properties have been destroyed, and was this sabotage?” Wee had posted.
On March 21, a flock of ducks struck MAS Flight MH114 to Nepal while it was landing at the Tribhuvan International Airport, breaking a light.
Two days after that incident MAS Flight MH066 had to divert its course and landed at the Hong Kong International Airport after the aircraft’s generator failed.
It was headed for Inchon, South Korea.
