The 47-page document compiles the satellite data of flight M370 from 16.06.43 GMT to 23.15.01 of March 7, the moment of last contact.

The experts have considered this piece of information as crucial to determine that the plane crashed in the southern Indian Ocean.

The civil aviation department said in a statement that it has fulfilled the commitment made by the transport ministry May 19 regarding the transparency.

Passengers’ and crew’s families have accused the government of withholding information and laxity in the search operation.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 vanished mysteriously about an hour after taking off for Beijing from Kuala Lumpur shortly after midnight March 8.

The Boeing 777-200ER was scheduled to land in Beijing the same morning. The 227 passengers on board included five Indians, 154 Chinese and 38 Malaysians.

The search operations have failed to find the black box or any trace of the plane.
