The plane's left wing was visibly damaged, forcing all passengers to disembark. They were flown to the capital later Wednesday evening aboard a different aircraft.
The transport ministry said it would launch an immediate investigation. "The plane and the pilot have been grounded for investigation," said Pramintohadi Sukarno, a senior ministry official.
All 189 people on board were killed and the Indonesian National Transportation Safety Committee has said that flight recorder data has so far revealed the plane's air speed indicator had not been working properly on its last four journeys, including on the fatal flight.
But the preliminary result of the investigation will only be known at the end of November.
