Indonesia transport minister says will review AirAsia operations

Indonesia`s transport minister said Monday the government would review AirAsia`s operations in the Southeast Asian country following the disappearance of a plane carrying 162 people.

Jakarata: Indonesia`s transport minister said Monday the government would review AirAsia`s operations in the Southeast Asian country following the disappearance of a plane carrying 162 people.

"We will do a ground check as well as a review of AirAsia`s operations in Indonesia to ensure that all of its activities are better in the future," Ignasius Jonan told reporters.

The Airbus A320-200 disappeared Sunday en route from Surabaya in Indonesia`s east Java to Singapore, after the crew requested a change of flight plan due to stormy weather, in the third crisis for a Malaysian carrier this year.

AirAsia, which has never suffered a fatal accident, said the missing jet last underwent maintenance on November 16.
