MH370: Official Reports

Official Reports include only those written by Government agencies acting in an Official capacity concerning the search for MH370 or the Investigation into the loss of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. As the aircraft has not been located, the most recent report by The Malaysian ICAO Annex 13 Safety Investigation Team, released in 2018, is not a 'final' report.

MH370: Official Reports

Following the loss of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 on Saturday, 8 March 2014 a Preliminary Report was written by The Chief Inspector of Air Accidents, Department of Civil Aviation, Malaysia. The Preliminary Report was released (to the ICAO) on 9 April 2014 and then to the public by the Ministry of Transport on 1 May 2014 with several supporting documents.

Subsequent Reports were issued annually by the The Malaysian ICAO Annex 13 Safety Investigation Team on 8 March each year. The first Interim Report in 2015 was accompanied by a substantial document titled Factual Information. This would become the basis for Section 2 of the most recent report - the SAFETY INVESTIGATION REPORT MH370/01/2018 which was released on Monday, 30 July 2018 to an audience consisting of Next-of-kin and invited Media.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) issued a report The Operational Search for MH370 on 3 October 2017. There are a also number of documents related to the search for MH370 which are referenced in this Report.
