An elderly woman has died after apparently going into respiratory distress after disembarking from a Qantas plane onto the tarmac at Canberra Airport on 2 January. Canberra is being blanketed by smoke from the New South Wales bushfires, and its air quality is currently worse than Delhi, Mumbai and Beijing. A Qantas spokesperson has said it had received no reports of passengers being unwell on the flight, with the plane having come from Brisbane.
