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

A Texas-based company claims to have scientific evidence of the final resting place of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370.

Ocean Infinity has announced a proposal for a new search in the southern Indian Ocean, where the plane is believed to have crashed a decade ago. It has already submitted the proposal to the Malaysian government.

Ocean Infinity has proposed a ‘no-cure, no-fee’ search – where the customer only has to pay for the services if the company assures a positive outcome.

Company CEO Oliver Plunkett said: “We now feel in a position to return to the search for MH370 and have submitted a proposal to the Malaysian government.

“Finding MH370 and bringing some resolution to all in relation to the loss of the aircraft has been a constant in our minds since we left the Southern Indian Ocean in 2018.

“Since then, we have focused on driving the transformation of operations at sea; innovate with technology and robotics to further enhance our ocean search capabilities,” he said.

Just after midnight local time on March 8, 2014, Malaysian 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 pings revealed that the plane deviated from its planned route, flying west over the Southeast Asian peninsula before changing its route south over the Indian Ocean.

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

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

Mr Plunkett said the company analyzed the data in the hope of narrowing the search area. “This search is perhaps the most challenging and even the most relevant there is.

“We have worked with many experts, some outside of Ocean Infinity, to continue analyzing the data in the hope of narrowing the search scope to an area where success may become achievable.

“We hope to be able to continue our search soon.”

In 2018, Ocean Infinity undertook a three-month search on a no cure, no fee basis, covering approximately 112,000 square kilometers, but this effort also ended without yielding any new findings.
