jetstarA baby boy was born on a passenger plane, Jetstar flight 3K583, which was travelling from Singapore to Yangon in Burma. The kid has been named after the airline.

 

 

Saw Jet Star, as the name given to the kid, was successfully delivered by three doctors who happened to be travelling on the flight. The baby boy weighed in at six pounds, seven ounces.

 

 

Both the mother — who unexpectedly went into labor during the three-hour journey — and the baby are reportedly in good health and have since been discharged from the hospital.

 

 

Jetstar policy towards expecting mothers requires a doctor’s letter from pregnant women travelling, 28 weeks into their pregnancy or more, to confirm their good health. Women up to 40 weeks pregnant are allowed to travel on flights less than four hours long.

 

 

The low-cost carrier said it would donate SGD1,000 (around $745) worth of baby supplies to the family.

 

 

A spokesman for Jetstar said that their crew are trained to respond to all kinds of events on the aircraft and that they are proud of the way the crew members assisted with the help of generous doctors onboard to ensure the safe delivery of the youngest ever passenger on a Jetstar Asia flight.
