“We just got information that a baby boy was born in our flight en route 6E 122 Delhi – BLR. Flight landing at 19:40. All operations normal. Mother and child healthy. Congratulations to all. Kudos to your training Team First Aid,” added the statement. All the flight operations were normal during the process of delivery. As per a report by The News Minute, the woman was not yet 32 weeks into her pregnancy which is why the airlines allowed her to fly. A senior gynaecologist who was luckily on the flight helped her when she went into premature labour. Meanwhile, social media users are already speculating if the baby boy will get a lifetime free ticket on IndiGo flights.
