A flight attendant is delivering a baby.
A Frontier Airlines flight attendant helped deliver a baby on the plane.
A woman went into labour while the plane was in the air.
The baby was delivered by a flight attendant identified by the airline as Diana Giraldo.
The flight was diverted to Florida to get the mother and baby to a hospital as the baby was being delivered.
Frontier revealed that the mother chose the middle name Sky due to the unusual conditions of her arrival in the world.
Captain Chris Nye said that Diana went above and beyond after the flight to coordinate our return.
The whole crew did a great job. As I coordinated the diversion, I transferred controls and flying duties to my first officer.
Dispatch did a great job by suggesting a gate and paramedics for us to use. I was happy to see everyone working together to successfully deliver a newborn on an aircraft.
There are other kids born in the air in recent years.
A Utah woman who didn't know she was pregnant gave birth on a flight from Salt Lake City to Honolulu in May of 2021.
A baby named Haven was given one million miles by the Filipino airline after he was born on a flight.
