Malaysia agrees to allow U.S. firm to resume MH370 search

06 de enero de 2018, 11:07Kuala Lumpur, Jan 6 (Prensa Latina) After reaching a cooperation agreement with the U.S. private company Ocean Infinity, Malaysian authorities confirmed today a new phase of search for flight MH370, which disappeared in March 2014.

On Saturday, the Malaysian transport minister Liow Tiong Lai said the government was committed to continuing with the search, but that he didn't want to give too much hope to the next of kin.

"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. Research vessel Seabed Constructor, leased by exploration firm Ocean Infinity, has set off from South Africa for the Indian Ocean with the aim of arriving in the search zone by mid-January, a source familiar with the matter said.

A spokesman for the company added: "The company are awaiting final contract award before the search recommences".

The Boeing 777 vanished during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 on board, sparking one of aviation's great mysteries.

Malaysia, China and Australia agreed to suspend the deep-sea sonar search in January after 120,000 square kilometres of seabed were combed without finding any trace of the plane.

Debris found in the Indian Ocean has been identified as coming from the missing aircraft, but nothing larger than an outboard wing flap has been discovered. Ocean Infinity did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Australia's national science body CSIRO released a report in April suggesting the doomed plane was "most likely" north of the former search zone in an area of approximately 25,000 square kilometres.
