Mystery Deepens on Flight MH370

KUALA LUMPUR- International News – There is more help, and the Malaysian Government is calling for people to pray but there is no word yet on the fate of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370. The Airline, in a statement says, “It has been more than 48 hours since we lost contact with our flight MH370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Despite not being able to establish any positive findings on the whereabouts of the aircraft, Malaysia Airlines has been actively cooperating with the search and rescue authorities coordinated by the Department of Civil Aviation Malaysia (DCA)”.

DCA has confirmed that search and rescue teams from Australia, China, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, Philippines and the United States of America have come forward to assist. We are grateful for these efforts.

The Vietnamese Ambassador to Malaysia, Nguyen Hong Thao has stated that the National Security Committee for Search Rescue, will update any information once they received it from those involved in Search and Rescue (SAR) operations.

“We will do our best if the aircraft had fallen in our waters. In fact, we have already dispatched 17 aircraft and 11 ships in the area where we found an oil slick and some parts, believed to be from the aircraft.The United States and China have also join in the (Vietnamese) SAR mission,” the Ambassador reports.

Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, the head of the Malaysia Civil Air Department states, “Unfortunately we have not found anything that appears to be objects from the aircraft, let alone the aircraft.”

Azharuddin Abdul Rahman adds, “They were intensifying efforts to find the plane, and the search would take as long as it takes”.

“We are every hour, every second looking at every area of the sea,” added Rahman. “There are now 40 ships and 34 aircraft from nine different nations taking part in the search in the seas off Vietnam and Malaysia”.

The Malaysia Minister of Defence is asking people not to report gossip or speculation on the flight’s fate online. Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hussein is cautioning people not to spread unverified news of the missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, the Minister says that is only going to cause undue stress and anxiety to the families and friends of the passengers.

Malaysia Airlines reports that their “Primary focus at this point in time is to care for the families. This means providing them with timely information, travel facilities, accommodation, meals, medical and emotional support. The costs for these are all borne by Malaysia Airlines. Initial financial assistance has been given out to all families over and above their basic needs”.

At least one caregiver is assigned to each family. These caregivers are well-trained staff and volunteers from Malaysia and other organizations.

As of now, there are more than 150 “Go Team” members consisting of senior management and caregivers at Beijing to attend to these families. In Kuala Lumpur, a different group of caregivers are attending to the families’ needs.

Families from other nations apart from China have been arriving at Kuala Lumpur since early yesterday. More are expected to arrive today.

Malaysia Airlines is working closely with the government of China to expedite the issuance of passports for the families as well as with the immigration of Malaysia for their visas into Malaysia.

When the aircraft is located, a Response Coordination Centre (RCC) will be activated within the vicinity to support the needs of the families. This has been communicated specifically to the families.

The airline continues to work with the authorities and we appreciate the help we are receiving from all parties and agencies during this critical and difficult time especially the members of the media.

Malaysia Airlines reiterates that it will continue to be transparent in communicating with the general public via the media in all matters affecting MH370.

Malaysia Airlines is similarly anxious and we appreciate the patience, support and prayers from everyone.
