An AirAsia flight travelling from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore has lost contact with air traffic control, the company has said.

Indonesian media say 162 people were on board.

“AirAsia Indonesia regrets to confirm that flight QZ8501 from Surabaya to Singapore has lost contact with air traffic control at 07:24hrs this morning.

At the present time we unfortunately have no further information regarding the status of the passengers and crew members on board, but we will keep all parties informed as more information becomes available.” The company stated.

The aircraft was an Airbus A320-200 with the registration number PK-AXC.

 

Already, “search and rescue operations are in progress”.

Recall that on 8th of March 2014, Malaysian flight MH370 went missing with 239 people on board and was never found. Then three months later, precisely on 17th July 2014, MH17, another Malaysian flight was shot down killing all 283 passengers.

The missing of the AirAsia flight is another wound in the heart of Asian aviation. Malaysia is about 895.15 Miles away from Indonesia. If you travel with an airplane (which has average speed of 560 miles) between Indonesia to Malaysia,
It takes 1.6 hours to arrive. The whole of Asia mourns again.
