Missing Malaysia Airlines flight will be found: Minister 

Malaysia

March 7, Malaysia: Transport Minister of Malaysia Liow Tiong Lai says he is confident that the missing MH370 airliner will be found in the Indian Ocean.

Tiong Lai said that the Malaysian authorities were not concealing any information about the flight.

He told the BBC that they would keep searching for the aircraft, which disappeared with 239 people on board.

Malaysia‘s civil aviation department is due to release an interim report on Sunday, one year after the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 airliner was lost. It was vanished en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

Australia is leading an international search team in the southern Indian Ocean, approximately 1,600km (1,000 miles) off its west coast.

The search’s A$120m (£61m; US$93m) budget is being jointly put up by Australia and Malaysia.

Australia, Indonesia and Malaysia announced earlier this week they would try out a new method of tracking long-haul flights in the wake of the disappearance.

The trial system enables planes to be tracked every 15 minutes, an increase on the current 30 to 40 minutes.
