New Straits Times - - News / Nation -

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian Air­line Sys­tem Bhd (MAS), to­gether with Malaysia Air­lines Bhd (MAB), yes­ter­day held a pri­vate re­mem­brance cer­e­mony at the Kuala Lumpur In­ter­na­tional Air­port (KLIA) in mem­ory of Malaysia Air­lines Flight MH370.

The event was at­tended by the air­line’s em­ploy­ees, as well as fam­ily mem­bers of the 13 staff on board, the na­tional car­rier said in a state­ment.

The gath­er­ing of the Malaysia Air­lines fam­ily was led by MAB chair­man Tan Sri Md Nor Yu­sof, who was joined by MAB’s chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Peter Bellew, mem­bers of the board and mem­bers of staff across all di­vi­sions of the com­pa­nies.

Those present said a prayer and held a minute of si­lence in mem­ory of the 12 crew mem­bers. A video trib­ute was also played at the cer­e­mony.

“On the re­lease of the In­terim State­ment by the Bureau of Air Ac­ci­dent In­ves­ti­ga­tion (BSKU) to­day, MAS would like to thank the in­ves­ti­ga­tion team for all the work it has done,” said the na­tional car­rier.

It said it had worked closely with the Malaysian Safety In­ves­ti­ga­tion team and given its full co­op­er­a­tion.

“As al­ways, we stand guided by any de­ci­sion made by all three gov­ern­ments involved in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion and search.”

MAS said that it re­mained hope­ful that the search for Flight MH370 would re­sume should the in­ves­ti­ga­tion team dis­cover any cred­i­ble leads.

“MAS would like to re­it­er­ate its com­mit­ment to keep crew mem­bers and pas­sen­gers’ next of kin in­formed about de­vel­op­ments and up­dates re­lat­ing to Flight MH370.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with all those af­fected by this tragedy,” it said.

On the re­lease of the In­terim State­ment by the Bureau of Air Ac­ci­dent In­ves­ti­ga­tion to­day, MAS would like to thank the in­ves­ti­ga­tion team for all the work it has done.
