In a similar incident, a woman gave birth during a flight journey from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to Atlantic City, New Jersey, in May this year. The unidentified woman gave birth during the final phase of a Spirit Airlines flight to Atlantic City International Airport, the airlines' media relations manager, Derek Dombrowski, said.

“We are incredibly proud of our crew’s response, and we wish the family the very best with their new addition,” Dombrowski said adding that the woman asked for privacy while she and the baby recovered. “While very rare, our crew is trained to assist in the unlikely event a guest goes into labor.”

The New Jersey state police confirmed that Emergency Medical Services (EMS) transported the mother and the child to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center’s Mainland campus in Galloway Township.
