In the lead-up to the five-year anniversary on Friday of MH370’s disappearance, family members of those lost on Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 have asked the Malaysian government to be more proactive in the search for the missing plane.
The appeal was made after one of its ministers hinted at a potential new search for the missing plane. The Malaysian transport minister, Anthony Loke, said this week he was willing to restart the search if there were specific proposals.
Two large-scale searches, covering a total of 200,000 sq km, have so far failed to find MH370 since it disappeared on 8 March 2014, with 239 people on board.
The most recent search ended in June 2018. American company Ocean Infinity searched the southern Indian Ocean for roughly four months, starting at the end of January 2018.
