Malaysia agrees to allow United States firm to resume MH370 search

More than three years after it disappeared, a new search effort is underway for Malaysian Airlines flight MH370. The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200 took off from the Malaysian capital on its way to Beijing, China, on March 8, 2014 and disappeared from the radars some 40 minutes later with 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board.

The Australian-led sea search, the largest in aviation history, was suspended in January a year ago.

But it looks set to resume soon.

Ocean Infinity said in a statement that the search vessel Seabed Constructor, which left the South African port of Durban on Tuesday, was taking advantage of favorable weather to move toward "the vicinity of the possible search zone".

"Now we have approached Australia and China, and we are working together to resume the search for MH370", he said.

Through a text sent to the victims'families, the company, which specializes in the exploration of the seabed, explained that a reconnaissance vessel has already entered the search area this week. The search was suspended in January 2017. The Australian Transport Safety Bureau's final report on the search conceded that authorities were no closer to knowing the reasons for the plane's disappearance, or its exact location.

The firm, Ocean Infinity, will conduct the search on a "no cure, no fee" basis, which means the company will only get paid if it finds the plane, AP quoted the Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai as saying.

Only three confirmed fragments of MH370 have been found, all of them on western Indian Ocean shores, including a two-metre wing part known as a flaperon.
