英语视频:亚航将发首批赔偿 每人近10万美元

AirAsia offers $125,000 to victims' families

亚航QZ8501航班去年12月28日在印尼爪哇海域坠毁,机上载有162人。7日,亚航方面称,对于该航班上的155名乘客,公司将向每位乘客的家属全额支付12.5亿印尼盾(合98200美元)。

AirAsia will pay roughly $125,000 in compensation to the families of passengers on board the fatal flight that crashed off the coast of Indonesia last month.

The company told CNN it will provide about $100,000 in compensation for each passenger on the plane. That's in addition to $24,000 already offered to victims' families.

A spokesperson said AirAsia will follow Indonesia's Transport Ministry's regulations, which set compensation at 1.3 million Indonesian rupiah ($98,000) for deaths caused by aviation accidents.

162 people were on board Flight 8501, which disappeared on its way from Indonesia to Singapore on December 28. Search crews have recovered parts of the plane and continue to scour the Java Sea for more clues as to why the plane went down.

It's unclear whether the amount being offered by AirAsia will require victims' families to agree not to pursue other claims for compensation.

International treaties play a key role in determining payouts in air accidents, specifically the Montreal Convention. It guarantees a minimum level of compensation for families -- currently about $174,000.

But the Montreal Convention is only valid in countries that have ratified it. Indonesia, the departure country for AirAsia 8501, never signed it. That could make it difficult -- but not impossible -- for families to invoke it.

Families may also be able to pursue potentially larger claims through the courts.

Compensation processes are likely to take time. In the case of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which went missing in March, families have received some initial payments but final amounts have yet to be settled.
