What: Air India Boeing 777-300 en route from Delhi India to Toronto,ON Canada
Where: Kazakhstan
When: Oct 22nd 2011
Who: 1 baby
Why: While en route, 35-year-old Kulraj Kaur (Kuljeet), a pregnant passenger in her 32nd week was traveling with her husband when she went into labor. A pediatrician and an oncologist were on board to deliver the baby. The eight hour delivery occurred at 31,000 feet and was considered “normal”. The flight continued, and the baby was born while the flight was still in the air.

According to aviation law, an infant born on a flight is granted citizen ship to the country where the plane is registered, regardless of the parents’ citizenship or location of the event.

The pilot Captain Kapil Kohli told Canadian ATC that “We departed with 268 passengers, but will be landing with 269.”

Most airlines allow women to fly up to 35th weeks, after which they require a note from their obstetrician.

In George’s Point of View


A whole new meaning to Express Delivery!

Congratulations to the family.
