Authorities have begun to search for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 bound for Beijing after air traffic controllers lost contact with the airliner carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew members early Saturday morning, the airline said.
Malaysia Airlines said flight MH370 lost touch with Subang Air Traffic Control around 02:40 local time Saturday morning.
The aircraft left Kuala Lumpur International Airport at 00:41 and was expected to land in Beijing at 06:30 local time (22:30 GMT).
“The flight was carrying 227 passengers (including two infants), 12 crew members,” the airline said in a statement.
“Malaysia Airlines is currently working with the authorities who have activated their search and rescue team to locate the aircraft,” the airline added.
One Russian citizen was among the passengers, Itar-Tass news agency reports.
Prior to July 2013′s deadly crash of an Asiana Airlines 777 in San Francisco, the aircraft had been one of only a few long-range jets built by Boeing and Airbus to have never recorded a fatality.
The 777 first flew in 1994, and was introduced into commercial service in 1995. Boeing had delivered 1,100 of the aircraft around the world as of last year.

The exercise will culminate in live-fire drills and the deployment of air defense systems, RIA Novosti reported.
