Malaysia Declares MH370 an Accident, but Search Still Continues

On Thursday, Malaysia officially declared the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 an accident. The search for the plane will still go one, but, in the meantime, the airline will proceed to pay compensation to the victims’ families.

According to a report by Reuters, the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) released a statement officially declaring the disappearance of the flight as an accident.

“We officially declare Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 an accident … and that all 239 of the passengers and crew on-board MH370 are presumed to have lost their lives,” Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) director-general Azharuddin Abdul Rahman said in the statement.

MH 370 disappeared from radar on March 8 last year. The plane was carrying 239 passengers and crew.

The search for the missing plane is still ongoing in the Indian Ocean.

The DCA will probably release an interim report on the investigation into the missing jetliner on March 7.
