Indonesia’s transport ministry said the plane had been flying on an ‘unauthorised schedule’ when it crashed, and the airliner has now been suspended from flying the route from the city of Surabaya to Singapore.
Authorities have also noted that recovery teams discovered two huge objects that is believed to be a part of the AirAsia flight that crashed last weekend.
The site continues:
Transport ministry spokesman J.A. Barata said the airline was only permitted to fly the route on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from late 2014 to early 2015.
Out of the 162 passengers, a total of 21 bodies have been found so far.
We send our deepest condolences to the victims’ families during this tragic time.
