A 24-year-old cabin crew worker died shortly after her plane landed at Stansted, an inquest has heard.

Greta Dyrmishi, 24, was working as flight staff for Air Albania when the tragedy happened, days before Christmas.

Essex Coroner’s Court heard on Wednesday (22 February) that Greta fainted and was given CPR and first aid, but couldn’t be saved.

A post-mortem found her cause of death to be sudden adult death syndrome, Mirror Online reports.

Confirming Greta’s death would be subject to a full documentary inquest, Area Coroner for Essex, Michelle Brown, said: “This 24-year-old female was cabin crew on a flight from Albania and was on the tarmac when she appeared to faint and was given basic first aid.

“Ten minutes later there was no pulse and CPR commenced. Paramedics treated her and confirmed she had passed away. A post-mortem found her cause of death to be sudden adult death syndrome.”

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

“Even after all the 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.

“We will always remember Greta as a passionate professional, an excellent co-worker, 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.”
