Malaysia urges private firms to find MH370, offers reward

The Malaysian government will offer cash rewards “in the millions” to private parties who are able to locate the wreckage of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 which is believed to lie somewhere on the southern Indian Ocean seabed after official search operations ceased this week.

“Any private body with relevant expertise” in finding the plane was encouraged to come forward, deputy transport minister Abdul Aziz Kaprawi said, adding that “we are opening up the options because the government of Malaysia is committed to continue the search.”

He did not specify the exact amount of the reward, but said that it would be raised by the Malaysian government together with Australia and China and would be “in the millions” (of Malaysian ringgit).

The deputy minister particularly named “experts from various relevant industries” such as the oil and gas sector, mining and those in maritime and defense industries to try to search for the wreckage.

After MH370 went missing on March 8, 2014, during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board, Malaysia, Australia and China began a joint search operation over 120,000 square kilometers in the southern Indian Ocean that would last almost three years, but to no avail. Experts since suggested to focus on a smaller corridor north of the searched area.
