A flight attendant delivers a passenger’s baby on a Frontier Airlines flight


The passenger gave birth early on the flight from Denver (DEN) to Orlando (MCO), said the post, which was shared on May 17. Flight attendant Diana Giraldo then helped her to the bathroom and helped deliver the baby.

In a statement, Captain Chris Nye, who was piloting the plane, said the plane diverted to Pensacola Airport in Florida and then continued to Orlando after the mother and baby were able to disembark with help from medical personnel.

“The whole team really did a great job,” Nye said in a comment shared on Frontier’s Facebook post.

“Dispatch also did a great job suggesting Pensacola airport and arranging a gate and paramedics for us. It was a job well done, and I was happy to see everyone working together to successfully deliver a newborn on an airplane!

Although the baby’s name and gender have not been shared publicly, Frontier revealed that the newborn’s middle name is Sky due to the unusual conditions of his arrival into the world.

In May 2021, a woman gave birth on a flight from Salt Lake City to Honolulu. In this case, however, no stewardess needed to help with the delivery – by happy coincidence there was a doctor and three NICU nurses on board, all of whom jumped to the action.

In fact, being born on a plane can sometimes have fun perks.

A baby named Haven, born on a Cebu Pacific flight from Dubai to Manila in 2016, has been offered one million miles by the Philippine airline. Although she is still too small to use them, the airline said the miles could be shared with her family members.
