The Airbus disappeared about two hours into a three-hour flight, after requesting a “deviation” from the flight path, an increase in altitude to 38,000 feet from 32,000 feet, due to turbulent weather. Contact was lost some 200 nautical miles southeast of the Singapore-Jakarta FIR boundary, authorities said.

There were 162 people on board including 7 cabin crew, said the company in a statement:

  • Passengers: 138 adults, 16 children and one infant
  • Crew: Two pilots and five cabin crew
  • Nationalities: 156 Indonesians, three South Koreans and one each of French, Malaysian and Singaporean.
  • “The UK Foreign Office has confirmed that one Briton was on board the flight, and next of kin have been informed,” Bbc reported.
  • According to the flight manifest, some 23 passengers were listed as no shows.
