Jet Airways has given free flights for life to a baby born at 35,000 feet on a journey between Saudi Arabia and the Indian city of Kochi.

The flight was diverted to Mumbai when the baby’s mother went into labor. The cabin crew and a fellow passenger, a trained paramedic, helped the woman give birth.

The airline thanked paramedic Mini Wilson for her help and congratulated the mother on "the successful birth of the baby boy.”

"Jet Airways commends its crew for their response and promptness that saw them successfully translate their training into life saving action," the airline said in a statement.

The baby now has a free lifetime pass for all air travel on Jet Airways, despite not yet owning a passport.

The plane resumed its journey to Kochi, on the southwest coast of India, landing 90 minutes behind schedule.
