MUMBAI: When an IndiGo flight departed from Bengaluru early on Wednesday morning there were 116 passengers on board, but two hours it landed in Jaipur with an extra passenger on board — a baby girl, who decided to begin her journey of life mid-air onboard the A320 aircraft, that is.
The ticketless passenger onboard IndiGo flight 6E 460 and her mother are both currently stable, said an IndiGo spokesperson.
“The baby was delivered with the help of the IndiGo crew, effectively assisted by Dr Subahana Nazir, travelling with us on the same flight,” the spokesperson said.
“Jaipur airport was immediately informed to arrange for a doctor and an ambulance on arrival,” the airline said adding that Dr Nazir, who helped deliver the baby, was welcomed into the arrival hall and a ‘Thank You card’ was handed over by the IndiGo Jaipur staff.
