An Airbus A320 with 144 people on board has crashed in the French Alps on its way from Barcelona to Duesseldorf.

Crash investigators, and French President Francois Hollande, said there was little hope of finding any survivors.

A total of 144 passengers were onboard the flight, including a group of 16 teenaged schoolchildren and two teachers from northern Germany.

The crash occurred in a remote mountain area and access to the site has been difficult.

The plane began descending one minute after reaching its cruising height and continued to lose altitude for eight minutes. The aircraft lost contact with French air traffic controllers at 10.53am at an altitude of about 6000 feet.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trades has no indications at this stage of any New Zealand passport-holders on the plane.
