Search resumes for Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 under 'no find, no fee' arrangement with private company
After an agreement was reached in October last year between the Malaysian government and Ocean Infinity, a US seabed exploration company under "no find, no fee" arrangement, search for the missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 has resumed.

Ocean infinity has chartered Norwegian ship Seabed Constructor for the job. The ship which set sail from Port Durban on Tuesday, is due to arrive off the coast of Perth on February 7.

The Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, with 239 people on board had disappeared on March 8, 2014 off the coast of Perth, Australia.

The largest ever search operation costing $200 million was taken up to find the missing aircraft. However, the ill-fated plane still remains untraceable. Its disappearance is one of the most intriguing mysteries in the history of civil aviation.

The Australian-led search for flight MH370 was finally given up in January, 2017, much to the dismay of the relatives of the passengers who went missing along with the plane.

Ocean Infinity will concentrate on searching the sea floor in a specified area measuring 25,000 sq km that had been identified by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau with "a high probability" of containing the wreckage of the aircraft.
