|BARCELONA England World Cup Jersey , Spain, March 24 (Xinhua) -- The president of the regional government of Spain's Catalonia said on Tuesday the government will provide support to the families of plane crash victims.
The Airbus A320 operated by Lufthansa's budget airline Germanwings crashed in the southern French Alps while flying from Spain's Barcelona to Germany's Duesseldorf. 150 people were killed in the accident.
"We have to be close to the people when they need us the most," Artur Mas said, adding that the government will help families to go to the area of the accident and will provide psychological support to them.
Mas told reporters there is no concrete information and asked for calm when it comes to the list of passengers. "We need to take into account that we must respect families and people directly affected," he said. "We have to speak with the families first," he said.
Mas explained that the vice-president of the Catalan government Joana Ortega was on her way to France while he would stay in Barcelona to coordinate with the Spanish government.
Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said the news about the plane crash in France was "dramatic and sad news with enormous human loss".
Rajoy England Soccer Jersey , who was in the Basque region, canceled his agenda and returned to Madrid. Spanish King Felipe VI, who was in Paris on state visit, has also canceled his visit.

Ambulances and medical assistance from the Red Cross arrived in the airport to assist the families, who were escorted by Catalan police in order to avoid pressure from the media.
LONDON, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- The number of British people enjoyingforeign holidays is the highest since the financial crash Jordan Pickford England Jersey , theOffice for National Statistics (ONS) said Monday.
But in the last 20 years British tourists have turned theirbacks on traditional two-week holidays in favor of short breaks andweek-long trips, said ONS.
British residents went on more than 45 million foreign holidaysin 2016, up from 27 million in 1996, a 68 percent rise.
Another big change seen by ONS is the drop in the number ofso-called "booze cruises" across the English Channel.
Thousands of people used to make the day-trips to France tostock up on cheaper alcohol.
The numbers started to fall after 1999 when duty-free saleswithin the European Union ended, coupled with prices for cigarettesin France also rising.
The arrival of budget airlines has also led to sky-high numbersof British tourists heading to tourism hotspots across Europe, saidONS.
In the two decades since 1996 the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA)said passenger numbers at British airports increased by 85 percent Marcus Rashford England Jersey ,from 135 million to 251 million, with half using the budgetcarriers.
"Around 50 percent of the traffic on low-cost carriers is newlygenerated, which means half of the people flying on budget airlinesin Europe weren't making those journeys before," said ONS.
At the same time, the number of people making sea crossings toEurope has fallen by 33 percent, with more opting to flyinstead Danny Welbeck England Jersey ,
ONS said not a lot has changed at the top of the destinationchart over the past 20 years, with Spain and France staying in thetwo top spots.
"While the number of holidays to Spain has rocketed by 87percent in 20 years, France is one of the few countries we'revisiting less than we were in 1996 with the number falling by 9percent," said ONS.
Germany has now joined the top 10 destinations for Britishholidaymakers, and another new entry is cruising along Europe'sfamous rivers, now four times as popular as it was 20 yearsago.
Two destinations that have dropped out of the top 10 since 1996are Belgium and Turkey.
Holidays to third placed Italy and fourth place Portugal haveboth more than doubled since 1996 Dele Alli England Jersey , with the only non-Europeandestination in the top 10, the United States, in fifth place.
Further down the rankings, the countries that have seen amassive percentage increase in British tourists are the United ArabEmirates (UAE), heading towards 600,000 a year compared to around25 Lewis Cook England Jersey ,000 in 1996, and Poland, also exceeding more than half a milliontourists from Britain.
ONS said the big rise in tourism to the UAE is largely due tothe popularity of Dubai, where there has been heavy investment inhotels and shopping malls.
And if there is any truth in the saying, every cloud has asilver lining, Iceland's success proves the point Ashley Young England Jersey , said ONS.
Iceland's newfound popularity is less straightforward toexplain, said ONS, with a rise in the numbers of Britishholidaymakers beginning around 2010, just two years after theeconomic crisis devalued the Icelandic krona, making the countrymuch more affordable for foreign tourists.
But a volcano could also have played a part in explaining thesecret of Iceland's tourism boom.
ONS explained: "2010 was also the year that the volcanoEyjafjallajokull erupted, sending clouds of ash into the skiesabove Europe and grounding planes across the world. Some think thatthe TV pictures of Iceland shown around the globe encouragedvisitors to go there." Enditem
