JAKARTA, – Lion Air flight JT-927 en-route from Indonesia’s holiday island of Bali to Solo was diverted and landed at Yogyakarta International Airport over an indicator light.

A spokesperson for Lion Air Danang Mandala Prihantoro said that the plane took off on Tuesday, March 21 at 11:29 a.m. local time from I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport carrying seven crew members and 218 passengers to Adi Soemarno Airport in Central Java.

However, during the flight, the pilot made an alternative landing diversion after detecting one indicator showing a potential issue in one of the aircraft's systems that needed to be checked immediately.

"To prioritize the safety and comfort of passengers and crew members, the decision to divert the landing was made and was very appropriate," said Danang in a statement on Wednesday, March 22.

Furthermore, Danang said that the diversion was based on technical work considerations so that the aircraft's safety could be handled quickly and easily. He confirmed that the plane landed safely and normally, and not as an emergency landing.

"After the plane was parked properly, all passengers were directed to the airport terminal," said Danang.

Regarding the indicator light, Danang said that he did not want to speculate on the cause, as it required a more in-depth examination by the aircraft's technicians or mechanics.

"Lion Air apologizes to all passengers for the inconvenience caused," he said.
