A new underwater hunt for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 has a "reasonable chance" of finding the plane, Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said on Wednesday, adding that searchers will not give up easily.

Flight MH370 vanished inexplicably en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, and there has been no sign since of the jetliner nor the 239 people on board.

It is believed to have crashed into the southern Indian Ocean far off the west coast of Australia, but a massive air and sea search has failed to find any wreckage, while an underwater probe gave no clues to the jetliner's fate.
