Germanwings Flight to Düsseldorf from Barcelona Crashes in Southern France – 148 Confirmed Dead


A German plane carrying at least 142 passengers and six crew members to Düsseldorf from Barcelona crashed on Tuesday in southern France, the French civil aviation authority confirmed.

The wreckage of the aircraft, an Airbus A320 operated by Germanwings, a budget subsidiary of Lufthansa, was located by a French military helicopter near the town of Prads-Haute-Bléone.

“We must feel grief because this is a tragedy that happened on our soil,” Mr. Hollande said. “I want to make sure that there have been no other consequences as the accident happened in a very difficult area to access, and I do not know yet if there were houses nearby. We will know in the next few hours. In the meantime, we must show support.”

The German foreign minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, said he could not comment about speculation regarding the presence of German victims.

“In these difficult hours, our thoughts are with all those who must fear that they have relatives among the passengers or crew,” he said, adding that he was “in the closest contact” with the French authorities.

This horrible incident may have an enormous effect on the European markets and stocks. Make sure to watch Lufthansa shares especially.
