Police said those killed were couples from the Swiss cantons of Zurich, Thurgau, Lucerne, Schwyz, Zug and Vaud, along with a three-member family from Austria and three crew members from Thurgau and Zurich.

In another crash on Saturday, a family of four including two young children were killed when a small plane came down in central Switzerland.

He added: "Our way of doing things is to keep government's role very modest, and it is focused on helping businesses to do what they do best".

Officials have said they were not aware of any distress call from the aircraft before the tragedy.

"One can ascertain that the aircraft hit the ground almost vertically at high speed", Daniel Knecht, who heads the aviation division of the Swiss Transportation Safety Investigation Board, said.

Speaking Sunday at a news conference in Flims, he said the vintage plane presumably didn't have the crash-resistant cockpit voice and data recorders that more modern aircraft have. They also expect the investigation into the cause of the crash to be "relatively complex". Authorities were informed of the crash at 5 p.m. Saturday, 50 minutes after the aircraft had taken off from Locarno's Magadino airfield.
