It’s only happened a handful of times, but yet another airliner is giving a baby born on one of its flights a free pass for life.

Indian airliner Jet Airways said it would give a baby boy born on a flight between Saudi Arabia and India free flights for life, CNN reports, after his mother went into labor prematurely on Sunday. A trained paramedic, one of the passengers, helped deliver the newborn at 35,000 feet alongside members of the flight crew.
