Kuala Lumpur – Malaysia’s newly appointed transport minister said on Wednesday the private US based Ocean Infinity’s search for the missing plane MH370 will end next week.

Anthony Loke said the search was due to end in April but was extended twice following requests from Ocean Infinity until May 29.

The Malaysian Airlines plane went missing on March 8, 2014, with 239 passengers and crew members on board.

The plane vanisheded during the flight, it was on route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur, becoming one of the world’s greatest aviation mysteries.

There have been many projects to help find the plane and at times have become fruitless, as underwater search by an international team was suspended in January 2017.

But another  hunt for MH370 began again early this year after Malaysia’s government approved Ocean Infinity to search for the plane on a “no cure, no fee” basis, meaning the company will covered all the costs and they will only be ask reimbursed if the plane is found.
