A search has established the cockpit noise recording device of a Lion Air jet that crashed into the Java Sea in October, an Indonesian official said on Monday.

Ridwan Djamaluddin, a vice minister of maritime affairs, told reporters that the agency investigating the crash that killed 189 people had informed the ministry of the discovery, which should encourage the investigation into the disaster.

"We received confirmation from the chairman of the National Transportation Safety Committee this morning," he said.

Human remains were also discovered at the location of the seabed, Djamaluddin said.

The two-month old Boeing 737 MAX 8 jet crashed into the Java sea a few minutes after take-off from Jakarta on 29 October and killed all 189 people on board.

The cockpit data recorder was repaired within a few days and showed that the air speed indicator of the jet on the last four flights was defective.

If the voice recorder is not damaged, it can provide valuable additional information for researchers.

The Lion Air crash was the worst air disaster in Indonesia since 1997, when 234 people died during a Garuda flight near Medan. In December 2014, an AirAsia flight from Surabaya to Singapore went into the sea and killed all 162 on board.

Lion Air is one of the youngest airlines in Indonesia, but has grown rapidly and has covered dozens of domestic and international destinations. It has spread aggressively in Southeast Asia, a fast-growing region with more than 600 million people.
