A baby girl born on EgyptAir flight has hit a jackpot after she was given a free air travel for life.

The baby’s mother who’s a Yemeni woman identified as Hiyam Nasr Naji Daaban gave birth on an airplane while traveling from London to Cairo last week.

Newyork Post reports that Daaban was on an EgyptAir flight from the UK capital to the Egyptian capital on Wednesday, Sept. 16, when she went into labor while passing through German airspace.

After being told that a pregnant passenger was in pain, the flight’s captain requested an emergency landing in Munich — but the passenger gave birth before the plane could land, EgyptAir tweeted the following day.

While not an ideal birthing environment, the unique experience not only gave Daaban and her baby a good story, but EgyptAir also awarded the newborn free lifetime travel aboard the airline.
