DEBRIS found washed up in South Africa and Mauritius is almost certainly from Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, the Malaysian transport ministry has revealed.
The MH370 flight had 239 passengers and crew on board and took off from Kuala Lumpur, bound for Beijing.
It disappeared from radar on March 8 2014 and is presumed to have crashed into the sea after veering off course.
Several pieces of what is believed to be the missing jet have washed up on islands thousands of miles away from where the plane went missing.
But the pieces found in South Africa and the Mauritian island of Rodrigues are said to be a match with the missing jet.
Transport minister Liow Tiong Lai said: "The team has confirmed that both pieces of debris from South Africa and Rodrigues Island are almost certainly from MH370."
Mr Liow said the findings support results from a previous examination in March, during which the team confirmed that another piece of debris found in Mozambique was also almost certainly from MH370.
A first piece of the Boeing 777 washed up on the French island of Reunion in July 2015.
The breakthrough comes after Australian government minister Darren Chester said the location – on the east African coast – was also consistent to where pieces could be found if the missing plane did indeed crash.
The pieces were discovered in Mozambique by South African teenager Liam Lotter and American Blaine Gibson.
The Lotter family found one piece in December last year and thought nothing of it until Mr Gibson found a second piece three months later.
A piece of the Rolls Royce logo has also been found on the coast of South Africa and is also suspected to be from the MH370 flight
