Malaysia to resume search for missing flight MH370 in southern Indian Ocean

Malaysia to resume search for missing flight MH370 in southern Indian Ocean

Malaysia is negotiating with US-based seabed exploration firm Ocean Infinity to resume the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 on a "No Cure, No Fee" basis.

"It is our duty to look for answers and the plane, and as of today the government has made a decision to go ahead with the search", he said.

The governments of Malaysia, China and Australia called off the 1,046-day official search nearly a year ago without solving the mystery of why it disappeared.

Nonetheless, Ocean Infinity is reportedly confident it can locate the wreckage using intelligence from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau and Boeing flight simulators, in conjunction with the vessel's enhanced search equipment, according to the Daily Express.

The message, seen by AFP, said that the "MH370 Response Team wishes to note that the Government of Malaysia has engaged Ocean Infinity to undertake further search operation for MH370".

"That means they are willing to search the area of 25,000 square kilometres pointed out by the expert group near the Australian waters", he said.

He did not offer other details.

The news came after the company, Ocean Infinity, said this week it had already dispatched a research vessel towards the expected search zone as it believed a deal would be finalised imminently.

Despite other methods such as studying satellite imagery and investigating ocean drifts after debris from the plane washed ashore on islands in the eastern Indian Ocean and the east coast of Africa, the 1,046-day search was called off on January 17, 2017. "Now we have approached Australia and China, and we are working together to resume the search for MH370", he said.
