EgyptAir gives baby born on flight free airline tickets for life

The free airline tickets appear to be only for flights to Munich

EgyptAir recently got a brand-new passenger – for life.

Last week, an EgyptAir flight was traveling from Cairo to London when passenger Hiyam Nasr Naji Daaban, 38, went into labor.

The flight made an emergency landing in Munich, but before it landed, Daaban had already given birth to a baby girl, according to tweets from EgyptAir.

The next day, the airline announced the newborn would be given free airline tickets for life, at least to Munich.

In a Facebook post, the airline congratulated Daaban on her newborn and made several thanks, including to Dr. Moataz Fathi “for his efforts to keep the mother and baby safe,” and to the crew and passengers for how they handled the situation.

She decided to name her son Sky Airon Hicks to commemorate his unusual birth. However, she wrote on his birth certificate that he was born in Anchorage.

“I didn’t want to put on a plane or in the sky," she told KTUU last month.
