An Etihad Airways pilot passed away while operating a cargo flight from Abu Dhabi to Amsterdam, leading the carrier to divert its path and make an emergency landing in Kuwait.

In a statement on Wednesday, Etihad Airways said the aircraft was diverted safely to Kuwait where a medical team was present to assist him.

“Etihad Airways is saddened to report the death of one of its pilots onboard flight EY 927, a freighter service from Abu Dhabi to Amsterdam. After the captain became incapacitated early in the flight, the First Officer issued an emergency call and safely diverted the aircraft to Kuwait,” Etihad said in a statement.

The pilot died while receiving medical care on the ground.

It added that after a medical team met the aircraft in Kuwait and offered medical treatment, the pilot was pronounced deceased.

After landing, medics battled to save his life – spending 40 minutes performing CPR but sadly they could not revive him.
