Passenger Gives Birth on Emirates Flight

Emirates Delivers Again...But it's Not What You're Expecting

While Emirates Airlines is used to delivering first-class service, they made a different kind of delivery on Friday, and this time, it's a bit more literal.

A flight from Dubai to Paris was diverted and landed at a Cyprus airport after a passenger gave birth on board. "Emirates can confirm that a passenger traveling onboard Emirates flight EK075, gave birth en route from Dubai to Paris on May 12," an airline spokesperson told Arabian Business.

"We have supported the passenger during this period and her health and safety has of course been paramount. As a result, the flight was diverted to Larnaca International Airport. The aircraft was refuelled and re-departed for Paris with a delay of approximately five hours," the statement continued.

Cyprus' airport Tweeted about the event, writing that "great things come in small sizes."

Emirates reports that the mother and the newborn are happy and healthy. That's one way to make an entrance into the world!
