However, the relatives of the passengers on board the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 have never given up hope of finding the lost airline.
The Boeing 777 aircraft disappeared after leaving Kuala Lumpur en route to Beijing, with 239 passengers and crew on board.
Australia’s Transport Safety Bureau confirmed that the search mission teams were given enough time to find the missing plane that vanished between Kuala Lumpur and Beijing in 2014.
Searchers led by engineering group Fugro have been combing a 120,000 square kilometre area of the southern Indian Ocean off Western Australia for the past two years.
As per the recent reports, the team now believe the aircraft may have glided down rather than dived in the final moments of its descent, which would have carried the plane beyond the current search zone.
The hunt for the missing aeroplane, so far, has found nothing except one piece of debri which has been linked with the plane with certainty. It was found on a beach on Reunion Island 2,500 miles west of the search area.
Doubts over the validity of the search zone are expected to fuel calls for the search team to make their data publicly-available so that rival investigation teams can pursue a collaborative “open source” method of hunting the missing plane.
Malaysian, Chinese and Australian ministers will meet in Kuala Lumpur to discuss calling off the hunt for the aircraft. The search was originally scheduled to end in June but has been hampered by bad weather and is expected to resume in December.
The three governments had previously agreed that unless any new credible evidence arose, they would not extend any search efforts.
