Jet Airways said it will give free flight tickets for life to a boy who was born on one of its flights between Saudi Arabia and India.

Jet Airways, a full-service global Indian airline that flies to 65 destinations, made the announcement of its lifetime air travel gift to the baby in a humorous tweet.

According to the Independent, the flight was diverted to Mumbai after his mother went into labour and thanks to a speedy reaction from the cabin crew and a trained paramedic onboard, the baby was born healthy just before the Boeing 737 touched the ground.

While it might be the most prototypical delivery room, the inside of a Jet Airways cabin does come with a lifetime of free flights.

"Jet Airways commends its crew for their response and promptness that saw them successfully translate their training into life saving action", the airline said in a statement.

Rafael Nadal Makes History at the French Open
All those years ago, it was Toni's decision to turn Nadal from a right-hander - his dominant hand outside of tennis - to a lefty. Stan Wawrinka told Rafael Nadal "you were too good" after the Spaniard stormed to a record 10th French Open title on Sunday.

The mother and her son were in good shape when they were taken to a local hospital after the plane landed in Mumbai. The Philippine-based #Airline Company said it was the first time that a baby was born on its airplane.

Dear Dad, I am sure you couldn't have asked for a better gift this Father's Day.

Every baby born on board a flight did not receive a payday. They result in an unusual line in the person's passport that says "holder born on an aeroplane".

As Metro reported, while extremely rare, this isn't the only case of a child being delivered mid-flight.

One baby got free tickets from Virgin Atlantic until the age of 21, while Philippine carrier Cebu Pacific gave a newborn girl a million frequent flier points a year ago. Similarly, in 2009, a baby boy delivered aboard an AirAsia flight won a lifetime of free travel for he and his mother from the airline.
