Germanwings To Resume Regular Flights

Fact checked

German budget airline Germanwings will resume regular flights that had been disrupted following the Airbus A320 crash in southern France on Tuesday. 

The crew members have been mourning the loss of their colleagues over the last 24 hours. Normal flights have resumed today, except for one from London to Cologne.

China Daily reports: “Following the incident in France yesterday, Germanwings cancels one flight today and operates the remaining flights according to schedule,” said the Cologne-based airline in a statement.

The airline canceled several flights on Tuesday because crew members refused to operate aircraft for “personal reasons”, the company said.

The airline would operate approximately 40 flights on Wednesday with 11 aircraft, most of which are from other airlines like Lufthansa, Air Berlin and TUIfly.

The company said some crew members would not be in their positions because of emotional distress, which the company understands, since “crew members have lost beloved colleagues in the incident.”

Flight 4U9525 crashed in southern French Alps en route from Spain’s Barcelona to Germany’s Duesseldorf on Tuesday with 150 people on board, including 144 passengers and six crew members.

Germanwings is a low-cost subsidiary of Germany’s Lufthansa Airlines, Europe’s largest airline.
