PUTRAJAYA – No Malaysia Airlines Berhad (MAS) flights in and out of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) have been affected by the haze, said the national carrier today.
However, it said Malaysia Airlines Flight MH2591 from Miri to Kuala Lumpur was diverted to Penang this afternoon due to poor visibility caused by the haze.
“Aside from MH2591, all other Malaysia Airlines flights in and out of KLIA are not affected by the haze,” MAS said in a statement.
Meanwhile, a Malaysia Airport Holdings Berhad (MAHB) spokesperson, without elaborating further, confirmed the MH2591 landed safely in KLIA at 4.12pm today.
As of 3pm, the Air Pollutant Index (API) reading in area around KLIA such as Putrajaya is categorised as poorer air quality at 99.
