That means a tital of nearly 80,000 square kilometers (31,000 square miles) and nothing was yet found. However, examining again all the information detained in the case, a 25,000-square-kilometer (9,650-square-mile) area most likely to contain the missing aircraft had been identified. This is a new hope and „everyone at Ocean Infinity remains absolutely determined for the remainder of the search,” Ocean Infinity chief executive officer Oliver Plunkett said in a statement. Flight 370 disappeared March 8, 2014, while en route from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing with 239 people aboard. No transmissions were received from the aircraft after its first 38 minutes of fligh.
The governments of Malaysia, China and Australia called off the nearly three-year official search in January 2017. If Texas-based Ocean Infinity company could find the wreckage or black boxes of the aircraft within 90 days the Malaysian government pledged to pay uo to $70 million. Ocean Infinity uses up to eight autonomous vehicles capable of operating in depths up to 6,000 meters (19,685 feet). Ocean Infinity’s search could be halted before mid-June due to weather conditions at sea.
