The extra fuel was enough to divert to alternate airports—Jinan Yaoqiang International Airport and Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport—which would require 4,800 kg (10,600 lb) or 10,700 kg (23,600 lb), respectively, to reach from Beijing.—approximately 18,000 feet (5,500 m)—on a direct path to navigational waypoint IGARI (located at 6° 56' 12″N 103° 35' 6″E).
The aircraft, a Boeing 777-200ER operated by Malaysia Airlines, last made voice contact with air traffic control at MYT, 8 March ( UTC, 7 March) when it was over the South China Sea, less than an hour after takeoff.
