Germanwings has darkened its logos on social media in the wake one of its planes crashing in southern France.

The Airbus A320 flight from Barcelona and Dusseldorf was carrying 144 passengers and six crew. It is thought there were no survivors.

The lowcost airline confirmed the incident shortly after changing its social media logos from a colourful 'W' to a greyed out version.

Germanwings said its "thoughts and prayers" were with the families and friends of the passengers and crew.

Parent company Lufthansa has also darkened its logos on social media:

“My deepest sympathy goes to the families and friends of our passengers and crew on 4U 9525,"CEO Carsten Spohr said in a statement. "This is a dark day for Lufthansa. We hope to find survivors.”
