Born to Fly with Emirates
15 MAY 2017
Emirates has long been known for delivering passengers safely and comfortably to their chosen destinations, but on Friday the UAE’s premier airline delivered something extraordinary!
An Emirates A380 aircraft was diverted from its flight, bound for Paris from Dubai, when a passenger gave birth mid-flight!
The plane landed in Cyprus instead, one of the nearest airports available at the time, so as to ensure the safety and wellbeing of its newest passenger and its mother.
Medical personnel were waiting on-site, and mother and child have both been reported to be in excellent health.
Cyprus airports have released this video of the event:
