Malaysia committed to locate missing MH370 flight
Kuala Lumpur: Malaysia has said it was committed to locate the flight MH370 which went missing over southern Indian Ocean in March last year with 239 people on board, as one more ship with enhanced search capabilities joined the underwater hunt.
“We are actively giving care, counseling and updating the latest information to the families and next of kin here and in China through the Family Communication and Support Centre in Beijing,” Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said.
An additional vessel has been commissioned to carry out the underwater search for the Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur which mysteriously disappeared on March 8 with 239 people on board.
The Fugro Supporter ship, owned by the Australian government, will join three other vessels already carrying out underwater searches in the southern Indian Ocean for the missing aircraft.
The vessel is equipped with an autonomous underwater vehicle which can scan portions of the search area that equipment on other vessels are not able to reach effectively.
