A Gulf Air flight bound for Paris Charles de Gaulle airport was diverted to Erbil, Iraq this Tuesday, November 22, after a crew member suffered a heart attack, but unfortunately not enough time to save your life.
Due to the development of a medical emergency, the pilots made this decision one hour and twenty minutes after takeoff at an altitude of 34,000 feet (10,360 meters). The aircraft landed safely on Runway 36 at Erbil International Airport.
According to FL360Gulf Air expressed its deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of the crew and thanked the passengers on board for their patience and understanding.
Flight GF19 from Bahrain (BAH) to Paris, which later resumed using the same aircraft, an Airbus A321neo registered under registration A9C-NE, landed three hours after standard time.
