The Airbus A320 was traveling from Barcelona city of Spain to Dusseldorf city of Germany that crashed in Alps mountain range in France on Thursday.
Manuel Valls, Prime Minister of France says he fears everyone on board might have been killed.

Six crew members were reportedly on the plane apart from 142-150 passengers.
Officials from the transport ministry of France say that before the crash the airbus sent distress signals.
