An Emirates plane was diverted to a Cyprus airport on Friday after a woman gave birth mid-flight (video here).
“Emirates can confirm that a passenger travelling onboard Emirates flight EK075, gave birth en route from Dubai to Paris on May 12,” an airline spokesperson told Arabian Business.
“We have supported the passenger during this period and her health and safety has of course been paramount. As a result, the flight was diverted to Larnaca International Airport. The aircraft was refuelled and re-departed for Paris with a delay of approximately five hours.”
The spokesperson added the wellbeing and safety of its passengers and crew were of the utmost importance to Emirates and will not be compromised.
