The tourist flight had taken off from the Bernese Oberland to take a group on a sight seeing trip over the alps. The crash killed two Swiss nationals aged 66 and 50 and two Austrian holidaymakers aged 50 and 46. 

The trip had been paid for by a local company to say thanks to its Austrian customers. 

Investigations into why the plane crashed are now underway.
