London (AP) More than 150 passengers of a British airliner are set to be flown to Cyprus today, a day after their flight was diverted because the co-pilot died mid-flight.

Gb airways says the plane was on its way from Britain to Cyprus, but landed in Turkey instead.

The airline hasn't released the co-pilot's name or age but says he died of natural causes. It says the passengers were never in danger.
