JAKARTA: Indonesia will end recovery operations for crashed AirAsia flight QZ8501 within two weeks.
Mr Bambang Soelistyo – the chief of Indonesia’s Search and Rescue Agency – revealed this after handing over the biggest and final part of the fuselage to the national transport safety committee for investigation.
He said the final date to end the operations will be determined after a meeting with the family members of the victims on Tuesday (Mar 3).
The Airbus A320 crashed into the Java Sea last December en route from Surabaya to Singapore with 162 people on board.
Mr Bambang said the bodies of some victims might still be found in the fuselage.
