16 months on from the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, today the company has confirmed that part of a wing that washed up on the shore of Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean last week was from the downed craft.



The airline states that the find was corroborated "jointly today by the French Authorities, Bureau d' Enquetes et d' Analyses pour la Securites de I'AviationCivile (BEA), the Malaysian Investigation Team, Technical Representative from PRC and Australian Transportation Safety Bureau (ATSB) in Toulouse, France and subsequently announced by the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak."




Whilst the aircraft has not been found, the find will allow searchers to use sea modelling to assist approximating a location where the airline plunged into the ocean last year.
