Baby girl born on Iberia Malabo-Madrid flight

Newborn weighs in at three kilos, assisted by midwife and pediatrician

A baby girl was born on Iberia’s IB3721 flight from Malabo in Equatorial Guinea to Madrid. The birth on the Airbus A319 was assisted by a midwife, a pediatrician and a family doctor among the passengers, backed by Iberia cabin staff. The delivery was very quick and the new passenger weighed three kilograms. The physicians on board determined that there was no need to alter the route and the flight landed at the normal time in Madrid where an ambulance was waiting to take the mother and daughter to hospital.
The little girl was the fifth baby to be born aboard Iberia aircraft – and the second on a Madrid-Malabo route. Others were born on routes between Madrid and Havana, Madrid and Bogota, Moscow and Tokyo.
