Malaysia hires U.S. firm to resume search for missing MH370

11 January 2018

The Malaysian government has announced yesterday that a U.S. exploration firm will resume the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 aircraft.

The new search area is said to be just north of a previous area.  It will be within an area of 25,000 square kilometers within the priority search area in Southern Indian Ocean. At present, a vessel for this operation is on its way to the search area from South Africa. It is expected to arrive at the search zone by mid-January and start the search.
