BANGKOK — The government of Malaysia and an American ocean exploration company began a new effort on Wednesday to solve
one of history’s greatest aviation mysteries: the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 nearly four years ago.
Mr. Liow, the Malaysian transportation minister, said finding the aircraft remained a priority for the Malaysian government.
Malaysia, China and Australia, which lost six people on the flight, spent about $157 million on the search of the ocean floor west of Australia.
The aircraft was heading to Beijing, from Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, when it deviated from its scheduled route for reasons unknown
and headed south over the Indian Ocean, flying for about five hours and, most likely, running out of fuel.
Under the contract, Malaysia will pay Ocean Infinity $20 million if it finds the wreckage or data recorders early in the search.
