PETALING JAYA: The Transport Ministry has confirmed that the last conversation between Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 and the air traffic controller was at 1.19am and the last words spoken were “Good night, Malaysian three seven zero”.
“We would like to confirm that the last conversation in the transcript between the air traffic controller and the cockpit is at 0119 (Malaysian time) and is “Good night, Malaysian three seven zero,” the ministry said in a statement released last night.
It also said the minister had instructed the investigating team to release the full transcript of the conversation to the next-of-kin during the next briefing session.
Earlier reports had stated that the last words from the cockpit was “All right, good night”, which came two minutes before the plane’s transponder was shut down.
Malaysia Airlines said the voice is believed to be that of co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid.
The Sunday Star had quoted a Department of Civil Aviation officer as saying the air traffic controller’s final words to the pilot were: “MH370, Ho Chi Minh 1270, good night.”
The reply from the cockpit was “Malaysian 370, good night” and not “All right, good night” as reported in a British newspaper.
