She said: ``Due to a passenger becoming unwell on the Leeds Bradford to Prague flight on Friday, the captain diverted the aircraft to Dusseldorf to seek urgent medical attention.
``We can confirm that the passenger did sadly pass away. We extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends at this very sad time.
