A pregnant woman passenger delivered a baby boy prematurely on board a Delhi-Bengaluru IndiGo flight on Wednesday. The crew assisted the woman in her delivery, India Today reported.
In a statement to PTI, IndiGo said, “We confirm that a baby boy was delivered prematurely on flight 6E 122 from Delhi to Bengaluru. There are no further details available.”
India Today quoted sources as saying that IndiGo may offer free tickets to the baby boy for life.
In a video gone viral, IndiGo ground staff and other crew members can be seen standing on the porch and applauding as others assist the woman and her newborn baby in deplaning.
As the woman got off the plane, IndiGo officials welcomed the baby and her mother to Bengaluru in a mini celebration on the tarmac itself with posters, India Today reported.
