Malaysian authorities have released data from communications between British satellite firm Inmarsat and Malaysia’s Department of Civil Aviation used to determine the path of Malaysia’s missing flight MH370.

The data release comes after mounting calls from passengers’ relatives for greater transparency. Relatives of passengers on the missing flight said that they have published the data on their Facebook page.

Inmarsat said that the data communications log comprises 14 pieces of data from seven "handshakes," or satellite signals, between the aircraft and the satellite company.

The Boeing 777 with 239 passengers and crew on board disappeared on March 8 during a scheduled service between Kuala Lumpur and Beijing, and is believed to have gone down in the Indian Ocean, off western Australia.
