The co-pilot had been suffering from low blood pressure and passed out after using the bathroom, according to investigators.
The Air Stewardess filled his role at around 5.30am and helped the pilot land the Plane safely in Spain. Her duties included completing pre-landing safety checks on the Boeing 747-800, the German Federal Bureau of Aircraft Accident Investigation added in Tuesday’s report.
Pilots are trained to land planes themselves but can request help if needed. The plane had 195 passengers and crew on-board.
The co-pilot was later released from hospital after doctors found no abnormalities. TUIfly spokesman Jan Hillrichs said safety on the flight wasn’t compromised and the incident was rare.
He added the flight attendant would receive an award for her bravery.
