Airline Gives Newborn Baby Free Trips for Life After Being Delivered Mid-Flight
A baby was delivered at about 35,000 feet in the air successfully on a Jet Airways flight to India.
One lucky premature baby boy was given free plane tickets for life after being born mid-flight.
Cicymol Jose gave birth in the sky as her Jet Airways flight was on its way to Kochi, India, from Dammam, Saudi Arabia, Sunday.
With assistance from the crew and nurse Mini Wilson, Jose successfully gave birth to a baby boy at about 35,000 feet. The Boeing 737 made an emergency landing in Mumbai, where both mom and son were taken to Holy Spirit Hospital.
Jet Airways shared the news on Twitter with a tweet that said, “Welcome to the World,” with a letter that granted the baby “a lifetime of free travel.” The letter was addressed to the father in honor of Father’s Day.
Although this was Jet Airways’ first midair birth, other babies have been born aboard planes in the past year.
Both Jose and her baby are reportedly doing well.
