Indonesia started investigations into at least its fourth aircraft accident in 16 months after a Boeing 737-800 passenger jet operated by PT Lion Mentari Airlines, which is banned from flying in Europe, crashed into the sea at Bali's international airport.

Search teams planned to retrieve the plane's cockpit voice recorder yesterday, Farid Indra Nugraha, the corporate secretary of PT Angkasa Pura I, operator of Ngurah Rai International Airport, said by phone.
