印度海军周五称，几乎翻了一番部署搜索安达曼海为与消失缺少马来西亚喷气船和飞机数量 239 人在船上.
“我们希望覆盖的地区，并应严格做到,” 印度海军发言人D.K. 夏尔马告诉法新社.
India had earlier deployed three ships and three aircraft in the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 which disappeared a week ago.
The Indian ships and aircraft were looking in an area “designated” by the Malaysian navy in the southern region of the Andaman Sea, Sharma said.
The Malaysia Airlines flight, which lost contact on Saturday en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, had five Indian passengers aboard.
Malaysian authorities had said Friday they were dramatically expanding the already vast scope of their so-far fruitless search, heading further west into the Indian Ocean and east across the South China Sea.
Indian naval authorities said in a statement that the location to be searched in the Bay of Bengal lies 900 公里 (560 英里) west of Port Blair, the capital of the Andaman and Nicobar.
