Lion Air, Indonesia's biggest budget airline which has been engaged in huge expansion, announced earlier this year it was buying 50 Boeing-737 MAX 10 jets for US$6.24 billion.

One of Indonesia's top transport officials also revealed pings believed to be from the aircraft's "black box" data recorder had been heard. But the authorities lost contact barely 13 minutes after the flight had taken off.

"We strongly believe we've determined the coordinates of the JT 610 fuselage", he told reporters in Jakarta.

The airline is to meet a team from Boeing on Wednesday to discuss the fate of its 737 MAX 8 plane.

Navy officer Haris Djoko Nugroho said divers will be deployed after a side-scan sonar produced a more detailed image of the object and location.

Anguished family members have been providing samples for DNA tests and police say results are expected within four to eight days.

Ningsi Ayorbaba's husband, Ferdinand Paul Ayorbaba, was on the flight.

An Indonesian Transportation Ministry Official, Captain Avirianto, said Lion Air had 11 of the new-era models while Garuda had one.

"I keep praying for a miracle, although, logically, the plane has sunk in the ocean", Toni Priyono Adhi, whose daughter was aboard, said.

The cause of the crash, just minutes after take-off from Jakarta, has yet to be established.

Edward Sirait, the president of Lion Air, has said the company was aware of reports of problems on the flight on Sunday and that a technical issue was "resolved in accordance with the procedures released by the plane manufacturer".

The plane is said to have flow erratically the night before the crash, according to tracking website FlightRadar24.

Lion Air flight JT610 crashed not long after departure from Jakarta on Monday morning. The vice-president of a leading airline in India that operates the Boeing 737 said Suneja was considering returning to India.

Founded in 1999, Lion Air capitalised on a boom in Indonesia's aviation industry, but has been plagued by safety woes and complaints over unreliable scheduling and poor service.

"Our deepest condolences on the tragic loss of lives in the Lion Air Plane crash, off the coast of Jakarta today".

"In accordance with global protocol, all inquiries about this accident investigation must be directed to the investigating authority in charge, the National Transportation Safety Committee of Indonesia". The ban was progressively lifted, starting in 2009.

The carrier began operating in 2000 and has had several incidents in its relatively short history, including a 2004 incident in which 25 people died.
