There is also no information about the possible causes of the disaster. Relatives of the passengers on the flight began to gather at the Jakarta airport, where a crisis center was organized. They are awaiting information from officials, but Sriwijaya Air said it is collecting more details about the flight before making a more complete statement.

The aircraft was 27 years old, according to registration data included in Flightradar24's tracking data. There is no single world “expiration date” for an aircraft - each airline decides for itself, based on the technical condition of the aircraft. At the same time, experts believe that the aircraft can be operated up to the age of twenty - provided that the carrier complies with all safety rules.
