Airplane debris that washed up on the Indian Ocean island of Reunion and may belong to the vanished Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 has been brought to France for investigators to study its origin.

An Air France flight carrying the debris landed at Orly airport near Paris this morning.

It will be delivered to a military unit near Toulouse which specialises in analysing aviation wreckage.

Experts hope the barnacled 2-2.5m wing surface known as a flaperon and a fragment of luggage could yield clues as to the fate of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, which vanished without trace in March 2014.

There were 239 passengers and crew on board, and some families of the victims are demanding further compensation from the airline.

Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said that additional Malaysian officials were headed to Reunion to look for more debris and others would go to France.
