KUALA LUMPUR: The Department of Civil Aviation Wednesday dismissed a rumour that Malaysia Airlines Flight MH149 went missing Tuesday night en route from Kuala Lumpur to Melbourne, Australia.

DCA director-general Datuk Seri Azharuddin Abdul Rahman said the flight landed safely in Melbourne at 5.21am (8.21am Australian time) Wednesday. The flight had taken off from KL International Airport at 10.07pm Tuesday.

The rumour circulated on social media was a false report disseminated by irresponsible people that could spark anxiety among the public, he told reporters.
