The usual flight time to Pontianak, in the west of the island of Borneo, is an hour-and-a-half: According to registration details, the plane is a 26-year-old Boeing 737-500.

Sriwijaya Air, a local budget airline which flies to Indonesian and other South-East Asian destinations, said it was still gathering information about the flight: The plane is not a 737 Max, the Boeing model involved in two major crashes in recent years: The first of those, in October 2018, involved an Indonesian Lion Air flight which plunged into the sea about 12 minutes after take-off from Jakarta killing 189 people.
