Statement by Malaysia declaring MH370 an accident

30 January 2015

The Australian Government notes the declaration of accident relating to the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 that was delivered by the Government of Malaysia.

We understand that the families of those on board MH370 are experiencing enormous grief, heightened by not knowing the circumstances under which the aircraft disappeared.

Providing support to those families, particularly at this difficult time, will continue to be a priority.

The Australian Government remains committed to the search for MH370 and will continue to work collaboratively with the Governments of Malaysia and the People's Republic of China in service of the families of those on board and the wider travelling public.
