Indonesian rescue workers have found bodies and luggage off the coast of Borneo Island as officials this morning confirmed they had discovered debris from the missing AirAsia flight.

 AirAsia Indonesia flight QZ8501 to Singapore missing

Flight QZ8501 lost contact with air traffic control at 06:24 local time (23:24 GMT Saturday) over the Java Sea. The plane, an Airbus A320-200, disappeared midway into the flight of more than two hours from the city of Surabaya. No distress call was made. Bad weather was reported in the area, and an air search operation has now been suspended for the night. Planes from Indonesia and Singapore had been scouring an area of sea between Kalimantan (Borneo) and Java. Some boats were reported to be continuing to search as night fell.File photo shows an Indonesia AirAsia Airbus A320-200 passenger prepareing to land at Sukarno-Hatta airport in Tangerang

The flight left Surabaya in eastern Java at 05:35 local time (22:35 GMT) and was due to arrive in Singapore at 08:30 (00:30 GMT). The missing jet had requested a “deviation” from the flight path to avoid thick storm clouds, AirAsia said. Indonesia’s transport ministry said the pilot had been given permission to climb to 38,000ft (11,000m).airmap

A few hours ago many of the relatives at the crisis centre in the airport still seemed calm – glued to their phones, perhaps trying to find any news of the plane or stay in touch with friends and loved ones

But more than 12 hours since the plane took off they are looking increasingly worried. Officials still have no idea what happened to the aircraft. The governor of East Java, Soekarwo, the mayor of Surabaya, Tri Rismaharini, and the chief executive of AirAsia, Tony Fernandes, have come to talk to the relatives to assure them that all is being done to locate the missing Airbus.
