It pays to be born on a plane. A newborn baby has been awarded with free tickets for life on Buraq Air after his mother gave birth aboard a flight.

The newborn’s mother was on a flight from Tripoli, Libya, to Niamey, Niger, when she started going into labor. Being born on a plane has lead to some strange situations, but in this case, the child was born with the help of the flight’s cabin crew. The mother named the boy Abdul Baset, after the plane’s captain.

Buraq Air is based in Libya and offers service aboard its small fleet to destinations in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

This isn’t the only time a baby has been rewarded for taking its first breath from 35,000 feet. Last month, a baby was born on a Cebu Pacific Air flight from Dubai to Manila. The airline celebrated the occasion with a gift of 1 million miles to the new child.
