Malaysia has offered a reward to help find missing flight MH370 – just days after abandoning its three-year search. Any private company able to find the main body of the Boeing 777 will be rewarded by the Malaysian government.
“All costs must be borne by them. We will only reward them if they are successful,” said Malaysian deputy transport minister Abdul Aziz Kaprawi.
The Boeing 777 jet disappeared in March 2014, en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur with 239 people on board.
Australia, Malaysia and China undertook a fruitless search of a 120,000 square kilometre area of the Indian Ocean at cost of $200 million.
However, despite the use of cutting-edge technology and advice from skilled professionals, the hunt was not able to locate the aircraft.
The only discovery to date has been part of the plane’s wing, found on Reunion Island in July 2015.
