Meet our super Cabin Crew, who helped deliver a new life on board!
Thank you, well wishers, for commending our Cabin Crew, who helped an expectant mother deliver her baby aboard our flight. Here’s a first-hand account of their experience of a lifetime!
How does it feel that you have helped a childbirth happen on board?
Miracles don't happen every day, but 18th June, 2017 was THE day for all of us. Each and every second from the mother's labour to crowning, followed by birth of the baby was priceless for us! A lifetime experience, indeed! The first cry of the baby boy got the best smiles on our faces! We hadn't imagined while boarding the flight, that we would have such a surreal experience of bringing a charming bundle of joy into this world. This is great teamwork!
Do you feel your in-flight training helped?
100%, without a doubt! Whatever we have achieved today is because of our extensive in-flight training. We can't thank our medical department and first aid trainers enough, for their excellent methods of training and the detailed manuals that they have scripted, that helped us on board.
Our in-flight training has made us capable of this appreciation we are getting today.
What is the message you would like to give out to your colleagues, especially those who have joined recently as Cabin Crew?
Our first priority is safety and first aid. Believe in yourself. Be calm and composed, keep cool when such circumstances arise. Don’t panic. Most importantly, believe in your team and synchronize with each other. Have trust in each other. Everything else will fall in place.
Lastly, what message would you like to give out to the just-born, bundle of joy?
Warm welcome to you, champ! You are a brave heart. You are a charismatic personality who is born battling and challenging all the odds, with a strong spirit. Your birth is an inseparable emotion in our lives.
We will look forward to welcoming you on board again and again, as now you are a charming addition to the Jet Airways family.
