Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai says there’s an 85 percent chance of finding the debris in a new 25,000 square kilometers (9,653 square miles) area identified by experts.

The government on Thursday signed a “no cure, no fee” deal with the Houston, Texas-based company to resume the hunt for the plane that disappeared nearly four years ago. The official search in the southern Indian Ocean was called off last year.

The plane disappeared on March 8, 2014, while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board.
