Lion Air flight JT 610 has crashed into the sea, with almost 190 people on board, shortly after taking off from the Indonesian capital, Jakarta.

Wreckage had been found near where the Lion Air plane lost contact with air traffic officials on the ground, said Muhmmad Syaugi, the head of the search and rescue agency.

According to the report, the Lion Air flight (JT-610) took off from Jakarta airport at 6.20am local time.

An Indonesian Lion Air plane carrying 188 passengers and crew crashed into the sea on Monday, moments after it had asked to be allowed to return to Jakarta.

A passenger plane travelling from Jakarta to Pangkal Pinang in Indonesia has crashed into the sea, according to the country's search and rescue agency.

"We can confirm that one of our flights has lost contact", Lion Air spokesman Danang Mandala Prihantoro told the Associated Press.

"We are still trying to dive to search for the plane", said Air Marshal Syaugi.

The Boeing 737 MAX was bound for Pangkal Pinang where it was expected to land at 7.20am.

Lion Air announced early this year that it was among three major Indonesian airlines, including Garuda Indonesia and Batik Air, that were upgraded to the highest level of safety rating after Indonesia passed a key global audit under the worldwide Civil Aviation Organization's Universal Safety Oversight Audit Program.

As per Indonesia's finance ministry spokesman Nufransa Wira Sakti there were 20 officials on board the crashed Lion passenger jet.

This similar to the experience encountered after an AirAsia Airbus jet crashed into the Java Sea in December 2015.

PT Lion Mentari Airlines is operating as Lion Air in Indonesia.

Aviation analyst Gerry Soejatman told the BBC that "very old aircraft are usually at the highest risk [of accidents], but very young aircraft also carry a high risk".

Suneja had joined the Lion Air in March 2011 where he flies the Boeing 737, reported Times of India. Boeing said it was "closely monitoring the situation". As of 9 a.m. there was no report about passengers or the plane crew, he said, adding that other vessels were making their way to the site.

Before Monday's crash the airline had not reported a fatal accident since 2004, when 25 people died when the DC-9 they were on crashed amid heavy rain at Solo City in central Java.

For almost a decade it was banned by the EU from flying into European airspace, deemed unsafe following a poor safety record since 2007, until the ban was lifted on June 16, 2016. The US lifted a decade long ban in 2016.

The crash is reportedly the first involving the widely sold 737 Max, an updated and more efficient version of the single-aisle jet.
