PERTH, Australia, April 22 (Xinhua) -- Planned air search activities had been suspended for Tuesday due to poor weather conditions in the search area as a result of Tropical Cyclone Jack, the Joint Agency Coordination Center (JACC) confirmed.

According to the latest update from the JACC, it had been determined that the current weather conditions were resulting in heavy seas and poor visibility, and would make any air search activities ineffective and potentially hazardous.
