Spokesman Jerry Holters said the girl was born two weeks early as the Transportes Aereos Militares plane headed toward La Paz at an altitude of 24,000 feet on Sunday. A doctor and a nurse who were passengers on the flight helped out.

Mr Holters says the military-run commercial airline, known as TAM, will give the child free domestic flights until she reaches age 21. She will also get a scholarship through high school at a Bolivian Air Force school.

The child is named Tami in honour of the airline. She and her mother were in good condition at a local hospital.
