Ocean Infinity Chief Executive Oliver Plunkett said the search vessel Seabed Constuctor, which left the South African port of Durban last week, is expected to reach the southern Indian Ocean by January 17 to begin the hunt. The report said this analysis complemented work detailed in a 2016 review and identified an area of less than 25,000 square kilometers (9,650 square miles) - roughly the size of the USA state of Vermont - that "has the highest likelihood of containing MH370".

Ocean Infinity will now resume the search, according to an email sent to the MH Family Support Centre by the government. A total of 20 million USA dollars will be paid if the plane was found within the first 5,000 square km scoured.

"It is my hope that we will find the answer that we seek for almost four years and bring some closure to this unfortunate incident", Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said at a press conference outside Kuala Lumpur.

In the initial search for the plane, a 52-day surface search covered an area of several million square kilometers (square miles) in the Indian Ocean west of Australia, before an underwater search mapped 710,000 square kilometers (274,000 square miles) of seabed at depths of up to 6,000 meters (20,000 feet).

Malaysia's government said Wednesday it will pay US company Ocean Infinity up to $70 million if it can find the wreckage or black boxes of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 within three months.
