Passenger has baby aboard flight

A woman who had her first child aboard an Armenian airline has named her daughter after one of the flight attendants who helped with the delivery

A passenger has given birth to her first child aboard an Armenian airline and named her daughter after one of the flight attendants who helped with the delivery.

The birth of the healthy baby occurred on Saturday, two hours before the long Armavia airline flight from Siberia was scheduled to land in Yerevan, Armenia's capital.

Flight attendant Asmik Gevondyan noticed that 31-year-old passenger Armina Babayan appeared to be in labour and organised the delivery conducted by several crew members.

"Even our male colleague, Grigor, did his part, bringing water and napkins," Ms Gevondyan told the Associated Press.

In gratitude the passenger, who had claimed to be six-and-a-half months pregnant during check-in, named the baby Asmik, local television reported.
