 Indonesias Lion boat company has suffered 6 accidents in 3 years and is still banned by the European Union.


Indonesias Lion Air, a Boeing 737 taking off from Jakarta Airport, lost its connection in the morning, the Indonesian Compass reported Wednesday. Up to the time of the Global Times reporters release, Lion Air has not yet determined whether the plane has crashed and other further information.

The Compass newspaper quoted Lion Airlines as saying that a plane flying from Jakarta Sugano-Hada International Airport to Bangka Penang Airport on Bangka Island, Indonesia, with the flight number JT610, was lost this morning. Lion Airlines could not determine the status of the plane and the reasons for the loss, nor the number of passengers on the plane. A Global Times reporter on Flight Radar 24 found that JT610 took off at 6:20 local time in Jakarta and was scheduled to arrive at its destination at 7:20, but lost contact shortly after taking off.

Flight Radar 24 showed that the aircraft on duty was Boeing 737 Max8, with a maximum passenger capacity of more than 160. The aircraft was introduced by lion Airlines earlier this year. As Indonesias largest private airline and a famous low-cost airline in Southeast Asia, Lion Airlines has a poor safety record. During the period from 2002 to 2015, there were 6 accidents involving the lion airlines. In 2013, a Boeing 737 from Bandung to Barcelona, the capital of Bali, crashed into the sea when it landed at Balis Woolai Airport. Fortunately, all the people on board were rescued. In May this year, a Lion Air flight from Chiang Mai, Thailand to Bangkok during the flight engine suddenly exploded, the aircraft landed safely after returning. For safety reasons, the European Union banned dozens of airlines, including Lion Airlines, from flying to Europe in 2007, and Lion Airlines is still on the EUs no-fly list.
