A CABIN crew member aged just 24 died suddenly after a plane landed at Stansted Airport, an inquest heard.

Greta Dyrmishi was a member of staff working for the airline Air Albania when she died.

Essex Coroners Court today (Wednesday) heard that Ms Dyrmishi was travelling from the Albanian capital, Tirana, to Essex on December 21 when she fainted suddenly.

First aid and CPR was provided but, sadly, she died.

The East of England Ambulance Service Trust said two ambulances, a hazardous area response team vehicle, an ambulance officer vehicle and Essex and Herts Air Ambulance responded to reports of a woman being seriously ill.

Michelle Brown, area coroner for Essex, said Greta's death would be subject to a full documentary inquest.

"A post-mortem found her cause of death to be sudden adult death syndrome."

She added: "At the time of the incident, she was at the front by the doors on a plane at Stansted Airport. This is suitable for a documentary inquest in due course."

A statement issued by Air Albania at the time of Greta's death said: "On December 21, after disembarking the passengers from our flight to London, one of our cabin crew Greta Dyrmishi had a heart attack.

"Even after all medical assistance was provided immediately, we still lost her.

"She was taken to the hospital in London, and procedures are being followed.

"From the first moments, Air Albania contacted her family, and we continue to be close to them in these difficult moments.

"In respect to Greta and her family, we decided to share the news with the public at the appropriate time.

"We will always remember Greta as a passionate professional, an excellent coworker, and a great friend to all of us.

"May God mercy her and give peace to the family. Air Albania will continue to be with her family."
