Malaysia’s Transport Minister Anthony Loke informed that a search by the US firm Ocean Infinity for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, which went missing in 2014, ended on Tuesday, May 29. However, according to international sources, the company is considering to continue its search, even after the deadline has passed.
Ocean Infinity may have lost its $90 million fee if it had found the plane, but it will not back down from the research. Namely, the company’s vessel Seabed Constructor continued its search as a Chinese navy ship detected a suspected black box less than a month after the plane disappeared. Seabed Constructor headed to that spot after the end of the search in order to check it out.
Moreover, the Chinese Navy ship had also picked up two separate pulse signals, which despite not being definitive proof that they came from the missing Boeing 777, they had the same frequency.
In addition, a number of white objects were reported on the ocean surface. However, Australian authorities were never able to confirm that the signals or the white objects were from the plane.
The company is now expected to travel to Australia for a commercial job, but it may go back to the southern Indian Ocean to further search for the plane. This will probably happen towards the end of 2018 or the start of 2019.
