The planned search area covers a swath of ocean 700 kilometers (435 miles) long and 80 kilometers (50 miles) wide and the cost of operation is estimated at 52 million Australian dollars ($48 million). Last minute information resulted from the analyze of a failed attempt to call the plane by satellite phone by Malaysia Airlines officials on the ground soon after Flight 370 disappeared from radar will probably modify the search area. This technical analyze “suggests to us that the aircraft might have turned south a little earlier than we had previously expected” revealed Australian Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss. As a consequence, it was considered that the initial defined area may be extended farther south. Malaysia, Australia and China representatives agreed that the search will not be interrupted or given up.
