Like dozens of other desperate relatives, Irfansyah rushed to Jakarta’s Soekarno Hatta airport late Saturday. On Sunday he still hoped to get good news about his sister and four other family members on the flight, including his parents.
We feel powerless, but we can wait and hope to get any information, Irfansyah told reporters.
Irfansyah said that her relatives were originally going to take an earlier flight operated by Sriwijaya’s NAM Air unit and did not know why this was changed.
His sister and two children were at the end of a three-week vacation and were traveling 740 km (460 miles) to Pontianak on the western island of Kalimantan.
“I was the one who drove them to the airport, helped them with check-in and luggage … I still feel like I can’t believe it and it happened so quickly,” Irfansyah said.
