Inmarsat proposes to offer free global airline tracking service

Global mobile satellite service provider Inmarsat has offered to provide a free global airline tracking service in order to prevent another Malaysian Flight 370-type tragedy.

Inmarsat is same British satellite provider that had helped reveal the last position of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, which disappeared in March this year.

Rupert Pearce, chief executive officer at the British satellite firm, "In the wake of the loss of MH370, we believe this is simply the right thing to do . our proposals can be implemented right away on all ocean-going commercial aircraft using equipment that is already installed."

Mr. Pearce added that Inmarsat had been providing global aviation safety services for more than two decades and that they were confident that the firm's proposal would bring a major improvement in aviation safety services.

The Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 disappeared on 8th of March this year, when it was flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. The fate of the missing flight has become one of the world's greatest mysteries as even a massive international search for the plane failed to detect any sign of the missing plane.

The proposal has been made as an International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) conference is all set to start in Montreal, Canada, on Monday.
