Australian officials will attend a two-day meeting in Malaysia to discuss the next course of action in the search for the missing flight MH370 that disappeared more than two years ago.

The meeting of senior officials from Malaysia, China and Australia, is scheduled for Monday at the federal government centre in Putrajaya, the Bernama news agency said.

The three countries are conducting the search for the missing aircraft that disappeared on March 8, 2014, nearly an hour after it took off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

"Top in the agenda of the meeting is on the future direction of the search operation for MH370," deputy transport minister Abdul Aziz Kaprawi was quoted by Bernama as saying.

The Beijing-bound aircraft with 239 people on board, including two New Zealanders, was believed to have crashed in the southern Indian Ocean.

Searchers have yet to find the main wreckage, although several pieces of debris believed to be part of the plane have been recovered during the past year.

The search has so far covered 105,000sq/km of the 120,000sq/km seafloor search zone.

The current search is expected to be concluded next month.
