An unexpected passenger recently showed up on a Turkish Airlines flight, but nobody thought to charge the stowaway for an extra ticket. A Turkish Airlines cabin crew has welcomed one more passenger on board after helping to deliver a baby girl during a flight. The mid-air labour began shortly after the plane had taken off. Nafi Diaby went into labour while flying from Conakry, Guinea, to Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso. Nafi Diaby suddenly went into labour while flying from Conakry, Guinea, to Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso. Turkish Airlines allows expectant mothers to fly up to their 28th week of pregnancy without a doctor’s report. After 28-weeks pregnant women must have a letter from their doctor to say they are fit to fly. Crew on the flight all worked together to help bring Kadiju into the world, and once the flight had landed in the West African country the new mum and baby were taken to hospital to be kept under observation. Turkish Airlines later confirmed that the mum and baby were both doing well. Sharing pictures on their Twitter account, the airline wrote: ‘Welcome on board Princess! Applause goes to our cabin crew!’ Pictures showed crew gathered around the mother, Nafi Diaby, as she lay across a row of seats. Cabin crew on the Boeing 737 helped a woman give birth to a baby girl mid-flight, and then posed for selfies with the infant, which appeared to be wrapped in an in-flight blanket.
