The Boeing 777-200 went missing on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8.

The safety board said in a statement Saturday the team was sent now because of the travel time involved even though the plane hasn't yet been found.

The board said that once the plane is found, International Civil Aviation Organization protocols will determine which country will lead the investigation.
