BERLIN, March 25 /TASS/. The Germanwings air company cannot say whether any Russians were onboard the A320 aircraft that crashed in French Alps on March 24, the company’s spokesperson told TASS on Monday.
"We do not have this information though not all the aspects have so far been analyzed. Theoretically, some passengers could have a second citizenship. But we cannot say anything concretely," the Germanwings source said.
The A320 airliner owned by Lufthansa’s lowcost arm, Germanwings, was flying from Barcelona (Spain) to Dusseldorf in Germany when it crashed into a mountain near a place called Digne-les -Bains in French Alps on March 24. According to Germanwings, the plane disappeared off radar screens at 10:53 local time (12:53 Moscow time) at an altitude of almost 1,800 metres.
There were 150 people onboard, including 144 passengers and 6 crew members, most of whom were from Germany and Spain. The citizens of Australia, Argentina, Belgium, Britain, Denmark, Kazakhstan, Colombia, Mexico, the United States and France were also among the crash victims, the French authorities said.
