A British passenger has been found dead by his wife on board a flight from the UK to Cyprus.

He never regained his consciousness and his wife on the same flight alerted the crew.

He was rushed to Paphos General Hospital by ambulance upon landing at 11pm local time yesterday.
But doctors at the hospital could only pronounce him dead on arrival.
A police source told the Cyprus Mail: ‘We can confirm that he passed away during the flight but at the moment there’s not much more we can say.’
They added they are not considering any criminal activity or anything suspicious about the death.
At the same airport last night, a 73-year-old woman travelling from Glasgow was seriously injured after falling from the plane’s ladder upon arrival.
She was rushed to hospital in a serious condition with a head injury, broken collarbone and broken ribs.
Doctors say she is not in danger despite the horrific injuries.
