I don't believe being a so called LCC is a primary reason here.

Assuming that's a secondary reason; then what is a primary reason for this particular carrier featuring so prominently in events in the region?

I'd say oversight by their regulator, organisation, just basic ICAO standards. I'm just quoting the data and may be very wrong but the mind boggles at some of the stuff that goes on. Just being a LOCO doesn't mean a carrier is unsafe. It's what the regulators (and passengers) let them get away with if they choose not to make the required investments in safety. https://www.icao.int/safety/Pages/USOAP-Results.aspx Compare Indonesia and Australia. Joe public has no idea except what they see on the news.
