MADRID (AFP) - A passenger went into labour during a Wizz Air flight from Valencia in Spain to Bucharest and gave birth to a boy inside the aircraft just after it landed in the Romanian capital, the airline said on Wednesday.
The woman requested assistance from the crew minutes before it was due to land on Tuesday at Bucharest's Otopeni airport, Romania's busiest, Eastern Europe's largest budget airline said in a statement.
"During descent and while taxiing to the terminal, the passenger was assisted on a back row of the aircraft by a crew member and a doctor who was travelling on the same flight," it said.
"Mother and newborn baby were met by the airport ambulance and taken to hospital. We are very proud of our crew who handled the situation with professionalism and care."
