Private Indian airline Jet Airways has gifted free lifetime air tickets to a baby born aboard one of its flights from Saudi Arabia to India.

The Kochi-bound baby isn't the first child to be born high in the sky this year.

The airline proudly announced the birth in a statement.

Mother Nafi Diaby was 28 weeks pregnant when contractions began to set in, and safely delivered a daughter named Kadiju with the help of cabin staff.

While the plane was still over the Arabian Sea she was helped by crew members and a nurse travelling to Kerala to deliver a baby.

This isn't the first baby born mid-air recently either - a traveller went into early labour onboard a Turkish Airlines flight between Istanbul and Burkina Faso in April. For instance, doctors might recommend women wear compression stockings or do in-seat leg exercises to reduce the risk of blood clots.
