An Indian airline offered a free lifetime flight pass to a baby born on a flight between Saudi Arabia and India on Sunday, CNN reported.
A JetAirways spokeswoman issued a statement saying that members of the flight crew helped deliver the baby alongside a trained paramedic who was among the passengers.
"Jet Airways commends its crew for their response and promptness that saw them successfully translate their training into life-saving action,” the spokeswoman said.
Airline officials escorted the mother and newborn to a hospital after the birth and said that they are now “doing well,” according to an airline spokeswoman.
JetAirways joins about half a dozen airlines, including Thai Airways and AirAsia, to have granted free air travel for life to those born inflight. Such births result in a passport that reads "holder born on an airplane," according to CNN.
