Settlement reached for 14 families of travellers lost on Adam Air Flight 574.


A settlement has been reached for 14 families who lost loved ones in the crash of Adam Air Flight 574 off Sulawesi Island in Indonesia on 1 January 2007.

The O'Reilly & Danko law firm of San Mateo, California, US and Stewarts of London, UK said that an unprecedented settlement has been achieved only three months after the crash.

Adam Air Flight 574 left Juanda Airport, Surabaya, the capital of the province of East Java, with 96 passengers and six crew members on board for a two-hour flight to Sam Ratulangi Airport, Manado, on Sulawesi Island. The aircraft reportedly disappeared from air traffic control in South Sulawesi about an hour into the two-hour flight and the wreckage was found about 60 miles off the coast of Sulawesi. Everyone on board was lost.

No details of the settlement were available.
