[JAKARTA] Indonesia's transport minister said on Monday the government would review AirAsia's operations in the Southeast Asian country following the disappearance of a plane carrying 162 people.

"We will do a ground check as well as a review of AirAsia's operations in Indonesia to ensure that all of its activities are better in the future," Ignasius Jonan told reporters.

The Airbus A320-200 disappeared Sunday en route from Surabaya in Indonesia's east Java to Singapore, after the crew requested a change of flight plan due to stormy weather, in the third crisis for a Malaysian carrier this year.

AirAsia, which has never suffered a fatal accident, said the missing jet last underwent maintenance on November 16.
