Search for MH370 to be resumed

A private firm is to resume the search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370.

The Malaysian government struck a deal US underwater survey company Ocean Infinity which will only be paid if it finds the aircraft.

Malaysian transport minister Liow Tiong Lai said the country has an “unwavering commitment to solving the mystery of MH370,” the BBC reported.

The Boeing 777 mysteriously disappeared on March 8, 2014 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, with 239 people on board.

A search operation was suspended in January last year. This led to protests from the relatives of those who were on board.

Ocean Infinity has leased a Norwegian research ship for the search.

The vessel reportedly carries several autonomous submarines in the hope of being able to search much faster than the last operation.

The US company has not revealed the estimated cost of the operation.
