KUALA LUMPUR: The Transport Ministry will review the standard safety procedures before take-off for all flights following the incident involving the Malaysia Airlines flight bound for Bengalaru (Bangalore), India, which was forced to turn back when its landing gears malfunctioned.
Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Aziz Kaprawi said that the standard operating procedures before taking-off must be fine-tuned in order to ensure that all flights can fly safely to their destination.
"We have ordered a probe on why there are a series of technical problems involving Malaysian Airlines planes.
"We are happy that the pilot had safely landed the flight and had followed the SOPs," he told reporters at the Parliament lobby on Monday.
MAS flight MH192 was forced to make a turn back and landed safely in KLIA.
The airline tweeted earlier that the Boeing 737-800 aircraft landed safely at 1.56am.
