Kuala Lumpur (VNA) – Malaysia has signed an agreement with Ocean Infinity, a US-based private search company, to resume the search for MH370 plane which went missing with 239 people on board in 2014.

According to Australia’s Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Darren Chester, Malaysia accepted the offer from Ocean Infinity and will proceed with the search, to which the Australian government will provide technical assistance. 

With the commitment of “no find, no fee”, the company will focus its search on the seafloor that experts said the area has “a high probability” of containing the aircraft.

Malaysia Airlines’ Flight MH370, which vanished in March 2014 on its route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board, has become one of the world’s greatest aviation mysteries.

The governments of Malaysia, Australia and China halted the search for the missing plane in January this year after spending over 140 million USD on it but gaining no result yet.

The airplane is believed to have gone down in the Indian Ocean. Various pieces of debris have been collected from Indian Ocean islands and Africa's east coast and at least three of them have been confirmed as coming from the missing Boeing 777.-VNA
