Lion Air, a low-priced carrier, has a spotty safety record, with a number of incidents over the years, including a crash landing at sea in April 2013 that remarkably resulted in no deaths or serious injuries.

Flight tracker websites reported the plane had vanished from displays soon after takeoff. Next of kin have gathered at Pangkal Pinang airport to get the latest updates, CBS News has learned. He joined the Indonesian carrier, Lion Air, seven years ago. He piloted the Boeing 737.

Flightradar said it was a Boeing 737. He is a very sweet sounding person.

Indonesia's Lion Air said it has lost contact with a passenger jet flying from Jakarta to an island off Sumatra early Monday.

"We are there already, our vessels, our helicopter is hovering above the waters, to assist", Mr Syaugi said.

Bhavye Suneja had received his pilot licence from Bel Air International in 2009. "We have forwarded the information to search and rescue teams", AirNav Indonesia Spokesman Yohanes Harry Douglas had said in a statement earlier today.

Preliminary flight tracking data from Flightradar24 shows the aircraft climbed to around 5,000 feet (1,524 m) before losing, and then regaining, height, before finally falling towards the sea. "Some ships tug boats were on location", he added.

Lion Air flight JT610 took off around 6:20 a.m. local time and was set to travel north from Jakarta to Pangkal Pinang, a city on the Indonesian island of Bangka.

"The plane crashed into water about 30 to 40 metres deep", said Search and Rescue Agency spokesperson Yusuf Latif.

Australia's embassy in Jakarta is making urgent enquiries to determine if any Australians were on board when a plane crashed into the Java Sea. The transport ministry said crisis centers have been set up Pangkal Pinang's airport and Jakarta's Soekarno Hatta airport. But it lost contact at 6.33 am. Twenty Indonesian Finance Department officials were also on the flight.

However, he went on to say that he could not explain why the pilot requested to return to base.

The Lion Air chief told reporters the plane had experienced a technical problem on a previous flight, but it had been resolved according to procedure. As of 9 a.m. there was no report about the passengers or the plane crew on board, he said. Authorities do not expect to find survivors.

The incident is also a blow to the country's aviation safety record after the lifting of bans on its airlines by the European Union and US.
