The flight with 156 passengers on board took off from Manchester on 24 February and was mid air when First Officer Michael Warren took ill. A purser administered first aid, and another co-pilot diverted the aircraft to Turkey, so he could receive emergency medical attention. On landing, Turkish authorities confirmed that Warren, a father of two, was dead.

Passengers on the flight spent the night in Istanbul, and were expected to fly to Cyprus later.
