Baby boy born onboard IndiGo Delhi-Bengaluru flight

Both the mother and the child are healthy and the flight landed at the Bengaluru airport at 7:40 PM, a statement from IndiGo confirmed


A woman delivered a baby boy inside IndiGo’s Delhi-Bengaluru flight on 7 October, according to an official statement from the airline. Both the mother and the child are healthy and the flight landed at the Bengaluru airport at 7:40 PM, a statement from IndiGo confirmed.

“We confirm that a baby boy was delivered prematurely on flight 6E 122 from Delhi to Bangalore. There are no further details available,” read the statement.

 All the flight operations were normal during the process of delivery. 

A cabin crew hold the new born baby in her arms.

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.

It’s not something new, but is incredibly rare and depends from airline to airline. Back in 2017, Jet Airways gave free flight tickets for to a boy born on one of its flights between Saudi Arabia and India.

The flight, which was bound for Kochi from Saudi Arabia was diverted to Mumbai, where the mother and baby were taken to a hospital.

Several photos and videos from the IndiGo flight showing the crew and passengers applauding the woman and her baby are now doing the rounds on social media.

In one such video, 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. Photos and videos of the woman and her baby were clicked along with the crew and pilot who helped her in the process.

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.

In a similar move, budget carrier AirAsia, in 2009, did the same for a Malaysian mother and her son. Cebu Pacific, a Filipino airline gifted one million air miles to the baby girl born enroute to Manila flight.

However, not all airlines are generous and we have to wait to hear from Indigo for the same.
