Malaysia’s Ministry of Transport announced a potential revival of the search for Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 (MH370) by Texas-based Ocean Infinity, as the 10th anniversary of the flight’s disappearance nears.

Transport Minister Anthony Loke disclosed the company’s proposition for a renewed “no find, no fee” search in the southern Indian Ocean, a region previously scoured by Ocean Infinity five years ago without locating the aircraft’s remains.


The Boeing 777 vanished on March 8, 2014, with 239 people onboard, shortly after departing from Kuala Lumpur for Beijing. Despite the initial flight path, satellite data suggests a deviation towards the southern Indian Ocean, theorizing the aircraft’s crash site in this remote area. Loke emphasized Malaysia’s commitment to uncovering the fate of MH370, stating, “If credible evidence is presented to the Malaysian government, I will do everything possible to get the Cabinet’s approval for a new contract with Ocean Infinity.” He invited the company to discuss their proposal, expressing hope for progress and offering sympathies to the victims’ families: “You have our deepest sympathies, and you’ll always be in our thoughts and prayers.”

Ocean Infinity’s CEO, Oliver Plunkett, confirmed the proposal’s submission, saying, “Finding MH370 and bringing some resolution for all connected with the loss of the aircraft has been a constant in our minds since we left the southern Indian Ocean in 2018.” Plunkett also noted the company’s advancements in ocean search technology and robotics, aiming to refine their search strategy with the help of external experts to “hopefully narrow the search down to one area.”
