MH370 Search Ends with No Result

The underwater search for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 offshore Australia has been suspended, the three countries involved in the search informed.

The last vessel, Fugro Equator, left the search area on Tuesday after surveying the remaining parts of the 120,000 square-kilometer search area.

The search failed to find the MH370 flight that vanished on March 08, 2014, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 passengers and crew on board.

The Ministers from Malaysia, Australia and the People’s Republic of China agreed that should the aircraft not be located in the 120,000 square-kilometer search area, and in the absence of credible new evidence leading to the identification of a specific location of the aircraft, the search would be suspended.

During the search, a few traces have been found outside of the search area, when debris washed up on the Mauritius, the French island Reunion and an island off the coast of Tanzania.

In addition, several media reports indicate that the search mission could continue with the privately funded search by the manufacturer of the missing aircraft, Boeing.
