Missing MH370: MAS on "heightened security"

SEPANG - Malaysia Airlines has initiated "a heightened security environment" for passengers following the disappearance of flight MH370 on March 8.

"We are now entering a stage of 'code tango' and have a heightened security code," chief executive officer Ahmad Jauhari Yahya told a press conference on Monday.

He said the move was to provide the reassurance of security for those travelling on the airlines.

He said its pilots have undergone psychometric and psycho-motor tests in line with international standards and protocols and MAS would look at the security and shortcomings to enhance its services.

"We have a heightened security environment (for our passengers) now," he said.

On large quantities of a cargo carried by MH370, he said there was about three tonnes of mangosteen on that flight.

Flight MH370 bound for Beijing with 239 passengers and crew disappeared from the radar screen on Mar 8.
