Indonesia Plane Crash: 189 Passengers Presumed Dead In The Latest Aviation Disaster

All 189 people on board a passenger jet that crashed into the sea off Indonesia are presumed dead in what is set to become one of the worst aviation disasters in the country's history.

The Lion Air flight between Jakarta and an island off Sumatra went down on Monday morning , with the passenger jet having lost contact just 13 minutes after take-off.

Indonesian search and rescue officials have recovered body parts from the scene of the crash, in addition to ID cards, bags, mangled mobile phones and other belongings.

They have also retrieved pieces of the aircraft, although the main body of the plane has not yet been found and they are not expecting any of those on board to have survived.

Operation director Bambang Suryo Aji told reporters: "My prediction is that nobody survived because the victims that we found, their bodies were no longer intact. And it's been hours, so it is likely 189 people have died."

Following the crash on Monday, the Australian government declared  on its website that its officials and contractors would no longer use the airline.

The European Commission said it had no immediate plans to ban Lion Air again, as there "have been no indications that the safety levels at Lion Air or the safety oversight in Indonesia" were deteriorating.

Spokesman Enrico Brivio says the commission would analyse the results of the investigation into the crash
