A search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 has been turned over to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, as it emerged the aircraft has been reported missing by the international air traffic control system.
The Australian Transport Security Authority (ATSA) said that after analysing data from the Australian radar, it is now possible to identify the aircraft.
“While there is no evidence to suggest MH370 is located, the aircraft is not currently being tracked and therefore we have not yet identified a credible flight path,” the airline said in a statement.
It said it is “monitoring” the radar data and that it is looking for the aircraft as well as any potential debris.
Airlines around the world have been in a state of shock since the plane vanished without a trace in the southern Indian Ocean, with thousands of passengers and crew stranded on remote islands.
“We have received reports that the plane may be lost and we are monitoring it closely,” the statement added.
Airliner staff have been asked to contact their colleagues in the US, where the aircraft was registered, to report any sightings of the plane.
More than 2,300 people have been on the ground at a number of Australian airports since Sunday, with flights scheduled to resume on Monday morning.
The plane is believed to have flown from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, but the aircraft’s flight data recorders were lost at sea when it went missing.
It is not yet known if passengers were on board the plane when it disappeared, although the Malaysian Airlines website said it “is currently in the final stages of analysis”.
The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has left thousands of people on the brink of panic, with the airline announcing on Tuesday that it would re-route its flights around the globe, but would continue to fly out of Kuala Lumpur.
MH370 vanished from radar while travelling from Kuala Lampur to Beijing on March 8, 2014, with 239 people on board.
More than 400,000 people have signed an online petition calling for a new search and rescue mission.
