ANOTHER TARMAC ACCIDENT INVOLVING MALAYSIAN AIRLINES PLANE


A baggage-transport vehicle caused some damage to a Boeing 737-800 aircraft belonging to Malaysia Airlines at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport today. 
The vehicle was said to have hit the aircraft, causing a tear in the underside of the fuselage,  The Star Online reported. 
With the damage, the aircraft was decommissioned and sent for repairs while Malaysia Airlines replaced it with another Boeing 737-800 for the scheduled flight. 
  • According to The Star Online, the cause of the accident is still being investigated but the driver of the vehicle involved in the accident has been suspended with immediate effect. 

The airline had also reprimanded the driver of that vehicle, which belonged to a vendor, but it is not known if there was any further action taken against the driver or the vendor.
This incident comes barely three weeks after another accident in which an airside vehicle (ground vehicles used by technical crew) had hit the underbelly of a Boeing 737-800 which was scheduled to fly to Yangon, Myanmar.
The B737-800 aircraft was scheduled to depart to Yangon (flight MH740) at 10.05am on Thursday, May 15, but due to the incident, passengers were transferred to a different aircraft which took off at 10.45am.
