SEPANG: Malaysia Airlines concluded that all 239 people on board Flight MH370 perished from evidence given to it by the Government on the missing aircraft.
MAS chairman Tan Sri Md Nor Md Yusof said the announcement by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on Monday night and the plane’s 17-day disappearance led the carrier to come to that conclusion.
“He (Najib) gave credible leads that pointed to where the plane ended.
“That position is very far away, very remote ... and after 17 days, we could only bring ourselves to this certain conclusion,” he told reporters at the KL International Airport here yesterday.
Md Nor denied that the airline had delayed evidence from being released publicly.
He added that it was up to the authorities to make the decision and MAS was the first affected party in this episode.
He said details of possible disciplinary problems among the crew of MH370 would be raised by the authorities.
MAS chief executive officer Ahmad Jauhari Yahya said the families of those believed dead would be taken to Australia once wreckage pulled out from the Indian Ocean was confirmed to be that of the plane.
“We have been informed by Australia that visas will be granted to the family members once evidence has been established,” he told reporters at KLIA.
Asked if he would resign once the investigation was over, he said it was a personal decision to make later.
