On the day of his departure to England, Aaron Kwok (郭富城) heard that Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was shot down in Ukraine.
According to Jaynestars, he then revealed a shocking piece of information: the airlines he uses to travel to England would use the same route that MH17 took.
Earlier, Aaron Kwok flew to London to attend the Royal Charity Polo Cup event. He met with members of the British royal family, including Prince William and Prince Harry. Former world cup soccer player, Michael Owen, was also a guest at the event.
Aaron was worried and unhappy about the crash, expressing that the lives of many innocent civilians cannot be guaranteed anymore.
He was surrounded by fans at the Hong Kong International Airport yesterday when he returned from a round of promotional events in England, where he met with the British royal family. One of the first things he wanted to do after getting off his flight was to buy coffee, but because of the large crowd of fans, Aaron did not get the chance to do so.
Though the news was quite frightening to hear, especially on the day of Aaron’s own flight, Aaron said the crash has not left a shadow in flying.
“I’m not too afraid, but now when I’m on a plane I would make sure to check the route map.”
Aaron said he hopes Malaysia Airlines and the Malaysian government will investigate this incident with haste because the public deserves greater transparency.
However, he also feels helpless about the issue.
“It’s not for us to worry about. It’s hard to avoid these things.”
