Ocean Infinity to Hunt for MH370

The Malaysian government is entering into an agreement with Ocean Infinity to search for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, Darren Chester, Australia’s minister for infrastructure and transport said on Thursday.

Namely, the Malaysian government has accepted the earlier announced offer from Ocean Infinity to search for the missing plane, entering into a ‘no find no fee’ arrangement.

“While I am hopeful of a successful search, I’m conscious of not raising hopes for the loved ones of those on board,” minister Chester noted.

Ocean Infinity will focus on searching the seafloor in an area that has previously been identified by experts as the next most likely location to find MH370.

“Australia, at Malaysia’s request, will provide technical assistance to the Malaysian government and Ocean Infinity,” minister Chester added.

No new information has been discovered to determine the specific location of the aircraft, however data collected during the previous search will be provided.

To remind, the two-year search was suspended in January this year after it failed to find the MH370 flight that vanished on March 08, 2014, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 passengers and crew aboard.
