WHAT WILL BE THE NATIONALITY OF CHILD WHO BORN DURING THE FLIGHTS?
In Jun2016 a flight departure from Jeddah to London was forced to make an emergency landing on London airport due to women having labor pain. Likewise in April in a flight of jet star departure from Singapore to Myanmar a women birth a baby with the help of staff and three doctors which were on a flight.
Birth of baby in a plane is a rare event however the question is raise what is the nationality of a child born on a plane?
According to the United Nation:
The Child will be given a nationality of a country where the craft is originally registered. Let say if a child is born on emirates flight he or she will be treated as Dubai national, however, American policies are different.
America has policy that any child who is born anywhere within boundary of America whether in aircraft or in ship will be treated as American national
Now the other question is raised whether the airline awards those children a lifetime free journey or not?
It’s totally depending on airlines but in past, we have noticed that in many of cases airlines announced the free lifetime journey for those Childs who were born on their flights. But it depends on the sole determination of airline.
