Minister of Aviation Services says that if a request is made, they will provide the Sri Lankan airspace to look into missing airliner MH370.

With the search for the missing flight reaching its eleventh day, investigators have expanded the search deeper into the northern and southern hemispheres.

As search operations continue without a result, questions have been raised of how a massive passenger jet slip passed radar, cross international borders and land undetected?

That’s a key question investigators are weighing as they continue the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which vanished March 8 on a flight between Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Beijing.

Radar does have some blind spots, and it’s possible to fly at lower altitudes to avoid being spotted, analysts told CNN.

But experts are divided over whether that could be what happened to the missing Boeing 777.
