Lion Air general affairs director Edward Sirait has said that there were no weather problems when a Lion Air Boeing 737-800 aircraft crashed on landing at Ngurah Rai International Airport, Bali, on Saturday afternoon.
He said the weather was quite good when the accident happened.
'The weather was fine. It was not specifically based on eyewitness report, because everything was recorded,' said Edward in an interview with TVOne as quoted by tempo.co.
Flight number JT 960 departed from Bandung, West Java, for Ngurah Rai, Bali, after it arriving from Banjarmasin, South Kalimantan.
The plane piloted by M. Ghozali was scheduled to arrive at 3:16 p.m., local time, but crashed off the end of the runway. The causes of the crash remain unknown.
The flight's manifest states that there were 101 passengers and 7 crew on board.
Bali-chapter National Search and Rescue Agency (Basarnas) chief Gede Darmade said through the Disaster Information Center's Twitter account, @infobencana, that all of passengers and crew were safe. (nai/ebf)
