Denial: Malaysia Airlines refuted reports one of its planes was involved in a near miss over Pakistan

Malaysia Airlines has denied a London-bound flights was involved in a near miss with another plane.
The airline issued a statement following reports by Asian media outlets that one of its planes destined for London narrowly avoided a collision in skies over Pakistan.
It had been claimed the flight nearly crashed with a Kuwait Airlines plane heading to Islamabad.
But Malaysia Airlines says it 'strongly denies' the reports and said it does not even fly over Pakistan because of safety fears.
A spokesman said: "Malaysia Airlines strongly denies that one of its flights to London experienced a near-miss with a Kuwait Airways aircraft over Pakistan airspace on Sunday, 5 April 2015.
"Following a Safety Information Bulletin (SIB) issued by EASA early this year, Malaysia Airlines has avoided the Pakistani airspace due to increased risk to flight operation safety."
The airline was involved in two major air disasters last year - which claimed the lives of 537 passengers and crew.
Investigators are still searching for the wreckage of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 , which vanished from the flight radar over the South China sea on March 8, 2014.
Just 131 days later Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was shot out of the sky as it flew over eastern Ukraine on its way from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.
