    A flight attendant has been described as "passionate" and a "great friend" after she suddenly died shortly after a flight landed.

    Greta Dyrmishi, 24, was working as a member of the cabin crew on an Air Albania flight when she fainted moments after her flight from Tirana landed at London Stansted, an inquest at Essex Coroners Court heard.

    Paramedics were called to the scene on December 21 where they provided CPR, but they were unable to save her and she died at the scene.

    A post-mortem found Gerta's cause of death had been Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SAD), Michelle Brown, area coroner, confirmed.

    "10 minutes later there was no pulse and CPR commenced. Paramedics treated her and confirmed she had passed away.

    Air Albania said in a statement at the time of her death: "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."

    The airline added that Greta was "passionate" and a "great friend".

    "We will always remember Greta as a passionate professional, an excellent co-worker, and a great friend to all of us," the airline added.

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

    SADS is a rare condition affecting an estimated 500 Brits each year.

    Also known as Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome, the condition occurs "when someone dies suddenly and unexpectedly from a cardiac arrest, but the cause of the cardiac arrest can’t be found", according to the British Heart Foundation.

    SADS can occur in young people if inherited heart conditions are left undetected and untreated.
