People have given birth on airplanes before, but not many give the honor of naming their child after the airline they were flying on. On a recent Jetstar flight between Singapore and Myanmar, a pregnant woman named Saw Ler Htu unexpectedly went into labor—the airline's regulations allow women less than 40 weeks pregnant on flights lasting four hours or less.

Lucky for her, there were three doctors onboard and an incredibly helpful flight crew. After a successful birth, the new mother gave new meaning to the word gratitude: she named her newborn son Saw Jet Star, inspired by the crew's A+ dedication and customer service. In another stroke of luck, Htu's family name is Star, so this isn't as big of a stretch as it could have been.

We're most pleased to announce that a baby boy, named Saw Jet Star, was delivered safely onboard 3K583 by a team of doctors and the crew after the flight landed in Yangon on Friday, 22 April 2016.

Both mother and son are in good health and have been discharged from the local hospital in Yangon.

The baby boy weighed six pounds, seven ounces and is the FIRST baby to be delivered on a Jetstar Asia flight and we will be contributing SGD1,000 worth of baby supplies to the family.
