KUALA LUMPUR: HUBLine Bhd will work closely with the Air Accident Investigation Bureau under the Ministry of Transport to determine the root cause of the helicopter accident at Cameron Highlands.

Yesterday, a Eurocopter AS355, bearing the registration 9M-SSW, owned and operated by its subsidiary Layang Layang Aerospace Sdn Bhd (LLA), had to perform an emergency landing at Cameron Highlands.

The helicopter was undertaking a Flying Doctor Services flight with one pilot and five passengers on board.

In a filing with Bursa Malaysia today, HUBLine said the safety of its personnel and passengers is the top priority.
