The Airbus A320 operated by Germanwings, the budget arm of German carrier Lufthansa, was flying from Barcelona to Dusseldorf, Germany, when it crashed into the snow-covered peaks of the Alps in southern France. Alpine rescue crews, who struggled to reach the crash site near the ski resort Prads-Haute-Bleone, have found no evidence that any of the 150 people on board survived.
