British Airways has confirmed that two of its aircraft crashed into a German village on Saturday, killing all 228 people on board.

The plane was flying from Dusseldorf to London when it crashed in the German village of Veltinschau in western Germany, killing 62 people and injuring hundreds.

The cause of the crash is still unknown.

In a statement, the airline said: “We are in the process of gathering the facts and will provide further updates as we gather them.”

A third British Airways plane also crashed in Germany, on Thursday, killing 15 people on its way from London to Hamburg.

It is the second British Airways aircraft to crash in the past three days.

The Airbus A330-200, operated by British Airways, was carrying 226 people, including the pilot and three crew members, when it went down in the Veltinsschau area of western Germany.

A British Airways spokesman said the plane was en route from Frankfurt to London.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is investigating the crash.

The NTSB said in a statement that “at this stage, there is no indication of mechanical problems with the aircraft.”
