Canberra - A Dutch company is to survey the ocean floor where the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 is thought to have gone down, Australian authorities said Tuesday.



The Australian Transport Safety Bureau signed a contract in Canberra with Fugro Survey, said the Joint Agency Coordination Centre, the body coordinating the search for the plane.
The survey work will last three months and cover 60,000 square kilometres of sea, it said.
The plane disappeared on March 8 on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board.
