In a yet another 'why it did not happen to me' moment, Jet Airways Granted a Baby-boy Free Lifetime Pass.
30-weeks pregnant Cicymol Jose was on board a Jet Airways Flight bound for Kochi from Dammam, the Saudi Arabia on Sunday.
She went into premature labor when the Airplane was flying over Pakistan and was immediately diverted to Mumbai to handle the medical emergency.
But, however, the urgency of her case demanded instant help and the baby was delivered on the flight with the help of Mini Wilson, a trained paramedic.
"The baby was born at 8.45am, while the flight landed at Mumbai at 9.12," according to the airport source as saying.
The birth was a first on a Jet Airways flight and so the airline decided to reward the Baby-boy with a Free Lifetime Pass for Air-travel!
Soon after the landing, the mother and the baby boy were taken to the hospital and both of them are doing well now, a statement issued by the Jet Airways said.
Later, the Airline expressed gratitude for Ms. Wilson, the onboard paramedic for her guidance and help. It also congratulated its employees for their prompt response that successfully translated their training into this life-saving action.
According to Jet Airway's policy, women are allowed to travel until their 36th week of Pregnancy, provided that they get a medical certificate stating that they are fit to fly.
