JAKARTA, Indonesia (CNN) -- An Indonesian passenger plane made an emergency landing Monday morning after its engine failed, an airport official said.

The Boeing 737 landed at Batam Airport shortly after leaving Tanjung Pinang for the capital, Jakarta, said Hendrawan, an airport spokesman. Tanjung Pinang is about 50 miles southeast of Singapore.

The failure of the left engine of the Sriwijaya Air plane occurred at 2,000 feet.

All 122 people aboard survived, Hendrawan said.

The plane was grounded and was to be inspected

I wonder what type of plane, and what airline?

It's more likely to be a diversion after an engine fire/failure I think, but seeing that aviation incidents are in the spotlight lately (sadly) the media will jump on every incident making it sound much more worse..

Absolutely agree with you. Last years media seems to have a gross influence exaggerating minor air accidents.

Perhaps a valid point (but also maybe not) but, then again, in reality any emergency landing for any reason shouldn't be regarded or played as a "minor air accident". Nothing minor about any flying incident.

This website, which asked to use my picture today, has a few more details. BTW, they don't know the registration of the actual aircraft involved.
