Rabab Ahmed may have a new definition for the term “airborne.” She gave birth to a baby girl on a British Airways flight that made an emergency stop at the Halifax International Airport.

Ahmed went into labour while traveling from Boston to her home in Egypt Sunday night. British Airways staff quickly diverted the flight to Halifax, in the hopes that the baby would stay put until Ahmed could be transported to hospital.


Both the mother and baby are doing fine.  What a birth story this little darling has to tell.
