A French team is reportedly responsible for bringing the body to the Ocean's surface via mini-submarines from a depth of roughly 2.4 miles, the BBC reports.
A statement read that the body was pulled up on Thursday morning.
The remains, still strapped into the plane's seat, required a lot of maneuvering to bring it to the surface.
Samples are being sent to a lab in France for DNA verification, the BBC reports.
During the first search effort, 50 bodies were found amidst the wreckage.
In March, news came that Air France is facing manslaughter charges over the crash, which occurred June 1, 2009.
