Ocean Infinity: Texas firm claims to have new leads in search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370

A Texas-based company claims to have scientific evidence of the final resting place of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

Ocean Infinity has announced a proposal to conduct new research in the southern Indian Ocean where the plane is believed to have crashed a decade ago. The proposal has already been submitted to the Malaysian government.

Ocean Infinity proposed research called “no treatment, no fee” – when a customer is only asked to pay for services if the company gets a positive result.

The company's chief executive, Oliver Plunkett, said: “We now feel able to return to the search for MH370 and have submitted a proposal to the Malaysian government.

“Finding MH370 and providing some resolution to all people associated with the loss of the aircraft has been a constant on our minds since our departure from the southern Indian Ocean in 2018.

“Since then, we have focused on driving the transformation of operations at sea; He said: Innovation in the field of technology and robotics to continue developing our capabilities in ocean research.

Just after midnight local time on March 8, 2014, Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, a Boeing 777, disappeared from air traffic control radars while flying over the South China Sea shortly after takeoff from Kuala Lumpur. In the weeks that followed, close examination of radar data and a series of satellite signals revealed that the plane had deviated from its planned route, heading west across the Southeast Asian peninsula before changing course south over the Indian Ocean.

There were 239 people on board, including 12 crew members. Malaysian Transport Minister Anthony Loke told reporters that he had invited Ocean Infinity to discuss a “no cure, no fees” proposal to resume the search for MH370.

“I am very, very confident that the Malaysian government and Cabinet will approve such a proposal,” he said.

Plunkett said the company is analyzing the data in hopes of narrowing the scope of the search. “This is arguably the most challenging, and even most relevant, research ever undertaken.

“We worked with several experts, some outside of Ocean Infinity, to continue analyzing the data in hopes of narrowing the search to an area where success could be achieved.

“We hope to be back in the hunt soon.”

In 2018, Ocean Infinity conducted a three-month search on a “no treat, no charge” basis, covering about 112,000 square kilometres, but that effort also ended without any new results.
