KUALA LUMPUR - MAS is geared to recover from the damage to its reputation caused by flight MH370, said its chief executive officer Ahmad Jauhari Yahya.

"This incident has affected the airline, but the investigation is still ongoing. We have a lot of work to do. The airline needs to get itself together, and if you have noticed from the experience of other airlines, it can take them six months to recover from a market reputation issue. We intend to recover quicker," said Ahmad Jauhari on Monday.

Asked if he would resign from his position at the helm of Malaysia's flag carrier, Ahmad Jauhari said he would not do so.

"As for my own personal position, I have work to do here," he said.

MH370, which had been missing for 17 days before it was declared by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak on March 24 to have ended its flight in the Southern Indian Ocean, disappeared from Malaysian radars at 2.15am on March 8 after taking off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport for Beijing at 1.30am. It carried 239 passengers and crew.
