BERLIN (Sputnik) — The German newspaper reported that Lubitz had lied to doctors that he had been off sick while flying for the Germanwings low-cost carrier.
The A320 Airbus, en route from Barcelona to Dusseldorf, was downed in a remote mountain area in southern France on March 24, killing all 150 people on board.
Investigators said that information revealed by the flight recorder suggested that Lubitz had crashed the plane after locking the pilot out of the cockpit.
Lubitz had taken antidepressants, tranquilizers and other medication to treat depression, the news outlet added.
Following the accident, a number of airlines have reviewed their safety policies, introducing the two-person cockpit rule that requires two crew members to be present in a plane cockpit at any time during a flight.
