Whether he is a nervous passenger or a confident flyer, one thing he will not have to stress out about is getting flight tickets as Jet Airways announced shortly after his birth that he would be receiving free complimentary flights for life following his arrival.
"Jet Airways commends its crew for their response and promptness that saw them successfully translate their training into life-saving action", the spokeswoman said.
According to Mashable, one lucky baby has been awarded free airfare for life by Jet Airways after being born aboard one of the airline's planes mid-flight Sunday.
Jet Airways flight 9W 569 from Dammam, Saudi Arabia to Kochi, India landed due to a medical emergency in Mumbai when a woman on board went prematurely into labor.
Ani News reports that a trained paramedic aboard the flight helped deliver the unidentified baby boy at around 35,000 feet.
Originally bound for the southern Indian city of Kochi, the flight was diverted to Mumbai, where the mother and baby were taken to a local hospital and are now "doing well", an airline spokeswoman said.
The baby born on the Jet Airways flight, by the way, will have a plethora of flights to choose from at some point. I thank mom for her indomitable spirit and the Cabin Crew's best efforts in helping me come in this world. This means more travel is on the cards, more fun outings with you and mom, and more of exploring this attractive world. They result in an unusual line in the person's passport that says "holder born on an aeroplane".
Inflight births are rare but not unheard of. Virgin Atlantic awarded a baby-free flight till the age of 21 while Cebu Pacific Air flight from Dubai to Manila was awarded one million frequent flier miles.
Other airlines have also experienced similar situations. Another baby born on Turkish Airlines in April was given nothing.
