  • Indonesia: Passenger Plane Flight JT610 From Jakarta Crashes 13 Minutes After Take-off

The flight lost contact 13 minutes after take-off, Latif said, adding that a tug boat leaving Jakarta's port had seen the aircraft falling. The shallow waters in the area have an average depth of about 150 feet.

"We are still confirming data on the names against the flight manifest", Nufransa said on Monday.

The crash is the worst airline disaster in Indonesia since an AirAsia flight plunged into the sea in December 2014, killing all 162 on board.

Lion Air is one of Indonesia's largest airlines.

Lion Air is Indonesia's largest low-priced carrier, operating flights domestically as well as a number of worldwide routes in South East Asia, Australia and the Middle East.

The flight was carrying 188 people including crew according to Indonesia's Transport Ministry. Boeing is aware of the airplane accident reports and is "closely monitoring" the situation, it said on social network Twitter.

Lion Air said the aircraft, on a 1-hour-and-10-minute flight to Pangkal Pinang on an island chain off Sumatra, was carrying 181 passengers, including one child and two babies, and eight crew members.

Lion Air's Malaysian subsidiary, Malindo Air, received the very first global delivery. It was not clear how many people were on board.

A Lion Air official earlier told the BBC the company did not yet know what had happened to the plane.

In May 2016, two Lion Air planes collided at Jakarta's Soekarno-Hatta airport.

The country's carriers have in the past faced years-long bans from entering European Union and United States airspace over their safety records.

Flightradar website said it was a Boeing 737. The database lists 208 hull losses for the single-aisle aircraft since 1970.

Authorities have begun search and rescue (SAR) operations for the passengers and crew of Lion Air flight JT610, which went missing on Monday morning en route from Jakarta to Pangkalpinang in Bangka Belitung. According to Planespotters.net, the jet was delivered to the airline in August this year.
