The Malaysian government has given the green light to resume searching for the remains of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, almost four years after the plane mysteriously vanished.
Ocean Infinity, a Texas based company dispatched a search vessel, called the Seabed Constructor, this past week to look in the southern Indian Ocean for debris from the plane the Malaysian government confirmed on Saturday.
If the company manage to find the wreckage, the company will stand to make $70 million.
“The basis of the offer from Ocean Infinity is based on ‘no cure, no fee,”‘ said Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai.
“That means they are willing to search the area of 25,000 square kilometers (9,653 square miles) pointed out by the expert group near the Australian waters,” he continued.
In one of the biggest mysteries in aviation history, the Boeing 777 vanished on March 8, 2014, on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board.
The remains of the aircraft has never been found, and in January 2017 the governments of Malaysia, China and Australia called off the official search.
