PETALING JAYA: The area in the southern Indian Ocean where acoustic signals were detected in early April has been ruled out as the "final resting place" of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
"The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) has advised that the search in the vicinity of the acoustic detections can now be considered complete and in its professional judgement, the area can now be discounted as the final resting place of MH370," said the Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC) in a media statement on Thursday.
JACC said the Bluefin-21 completed its last search mission the remaining areas in the vicinity of the acoustic signals on Wednesday.
The data collected had been analysed and no signs of aircraft debris have been found by the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle since it joined the search effort, it said.
