Jokowi spoke at the press conference about an extensive search

President Joko Widodo spoke at a press conference at Juanda International Airport in Surabaya at around 7 p.m. to express his condolences to family members of the passengers and crew of the flight, adding that an extensive search will be conducted on Wednesday. “Tomorrow morning, there will be a huge search operation by using aircraft and vessels,” Joko said. “I’ve instructed the National Search and Rescue Agency to make a joint operation to find the body of the airplane and also passengers and flight crew. I’ve instructed them to focus on retrieving the passengers and flight crew. “I also want to thank and give my highest appreciation to the National Search and Rescue Agency, the Indonesian Armed Forces, the National Police, the volunteers and also the fishermen who have helped in the search of the airplane, the passengers and flight crew. “I also want to thank the neighboring countries who have joined in in the search — from Singapore, Malaysia and Australia,” he said. “For the families of the passengers and flight crew, I’m also at a loss from this incident and I’m sending my prayers to the families so that they can find the strength to get through this misfortune,” Joko said. AirAsia Group chief executive Tony Fernandes was also present at the press conference, saying that he hoped that the flight recorder box will be recovered as part of the investigation as to why the aircraft went down into the sea. He defended the captain’s experience and the performance of the aircraft but accepted responsibility as leader of the company. “You don’t know what went wrong,” Fernandes said. “This is a scar that will be with me for the rest of my life.” He offered his condolences to the family members of the passengers and crew, adding that the focus would be on the recovery of remains and the aircraft. “Words can’t express what they’re going through, but I’ve talked to the families with my limited bahasa Indonesia,” Fernandes said. Compensation will be given to the families, he said, but he will wait for an investigation on the cause of the aircraft’s accident. “We’ll keep investigating what went wrong during the accident,” he said.
