The mystery of MH370 has baffled investigators and experts, with more than $50 million raised for a missing plane search.
The latest crowdfunding campaign to find the Boeing 777-200ER, which disappeared with 239 people on board on March 8, 2019, has raised nearly $25 million, a figure that is believed to be “within reach” of its goal.
Malaysia Airlines said in a statement on Sunday that it was raising the money “to ensure the safety and security of our crew members, passengers and their families.”
A total of $22.5 million has been raised to date, according to the campaign, which was launched on Tuesday.
Malay Mail Online has reached out to Malaysian Airlines for comment.
Malawian authorities have said they are “committed” to finding MH370.
On Saturday, the Malaysian Transport Minister, Hishammuddin Hussein, said he was “100 per cent sure” the Boeing 767-300ER, known as the Boeing 702, was lost.
On March 6, Malaysian authorities released images of what they described as debris from the missing Malaysia Airlines flight.
It included parts from the fuselage and two passenger jets, and a piece of an engine.
Malcolm Marshall, a Malaysia Airlines spokesman, said on Sunday: “We are working closely with the Malaysian government and international partners to make this a successful crowdfunding campaign.”
