U.S. firm seals deal to resume MH370 hunt

U.S. firm seals deal to resume MH370 hunt

The search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, modern aviation's biggest mystery, is set to resume after a US exploration company sent a vessel to the search zone and said it hopes to win a contract within days.

The minister said, "It is our duty to look for answers and the plane". But on Saturday, Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said the voyage is "no cure, no fee" - that is, Ocean Infinity will only profit from the mission if it's successful, ABC reports.

The governments of Malaysia, Australia and China suspended the search operation in January 2017 after nearly three years' efforts in a 120,000-square-km area in the Southern Indian Ocean failed to find any sign of the wreckage of the plane. In a final report on the search a year ago, authorities identified about 25,000 square kilometers of remote waters west of Australia as the wreck's most likely resting place.

"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.

However, he said, "I don't want to give too much hope ... to the (next of kin)".

He did not offer other details.

USA company Ocean Infinity dispatched a search vessel, the Seabed Constructor, from South Africa earlier this week, ABC reports. Several teams from different countries have looked for the Boeing 777 in a 1.2 lakh-sq-km area of the Indian Ocean. "Now we have approached Australia and China, and we are working together to resume the search for MH370", he said.

The search was extremely hard because no transmissions were received from the aircraft after its first 38 minutes of flight.
