A CSA Czech Airlines plane made an emergency landing in Prague on Wednesday after the captain collapsed and died in mid-flight, the company said.
The ATR turbo-prop aircraft on a scheduled flight from Warsaw to Prague with 46 passengers on board, landed under the control of the co-pilot.
"Safety of passengers was not threatened. The landing was conducted without complications by the second pilot," the airline said in a statement.
"Unfortunately the life of the captain could not be saved," the statement said.
CSA Czech Airlines is the state-owned Czech national carrier.
