It is because of the tragedy of the French Alps, where the passenger was alone in the car and crashed the plane for their psychological problems.

The German airline decided to introduce new rules for the cockpit of his aircraft after the loss of an aircraft Germanwings, the German Aviation Association BDL.

"German airlines have adopted as a first step a new preliminary procedure that requires two authorized persons are in the cockpit at all times", BDL said in a statement.

BDL spokeswoman, Christine Kolmar, told Xinhua that all members of BDL, including Lufthansa Group, will have to abide by the new rules. In addition, several airlines outside the group expressed their willingness to introduce new rules for the cabin.

The decision was taken after discussions between members of the BDL, as well as with the Ministry of Transport of Germany and the Federal Aviation Germany, the statement said.

A total of 150 people were killed on Tuesday when a passenger plane crashed Germanwings in the Alps south of France. Only the co-pilot was in the cockpit at the time.

The investigation of the incident plane, running a flight 4U9525, took an unexpected twist on Thursday because the audio recording of a black box showed that the German co-driver deliberately crashed the plane after dropping out of the cockpit the captain .

The German authorities said the airline had decided to immediately apply the rule, including Lufthansa, the main airline of the country and its subsidiary Germanwings.

The Federal Aviation Administration approved the rule after the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001. However, the decision was left to the discretion of the airlines of Germany and other countries. Norway, the United Kingdom and Canada announced that they had also begun to apply the rule of two people after the accident this week.
