Baby Girl Born On Aeroflot A310!

Sat Mar 10, 2001 1:50 am

----------
(quote from justplanes.com)

Flight SU558, an Airbus A310-300 en route from Singapore to Moscow, was forced to divert to Calcutta on Tuesday (06Mar) after an Indian woman gave birth to a daughter. The crew helped to deliver the baby who was taken to hospital when the plane touched down.

I thought women who are pregnant for more than 7 months are not allowed on planes, for fear that exactly this thing may happen... Perhaps Aeroflot has a different policy?

Also, she may not have disclosed her status to the airline - some pregnant women don't look very expectant.
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

What I want to know is if someone is born whilst airborne, what country do they become citizens of?

The country they are flying over?
The country that they departed from?
The country they land in?
The country that the plane belongs to?
The country that the parents are citizens of?

Matt D,

I think different countries will have different policies regarding this extraordinary situation. However, in this case the route is SIN-SVO, if the parents are from Singapore, then the girl will most probably be Singaporean (and same for Russian parents). But definitely not the nation where the plane is flying over.

From what I've read kids born on a flight will have "International Airspace" as the "City of Birth" in their passports.

Pretty cool!

However, I doubt if the girl was born when the A310 was over international airspace. It might be in the airspace of Kazakhstan, Thailand, Malaysia, Cambodia, India, ....... any country under the airway.

If "City of Birth" is going to be the nation's airspace, that'd be troublesome. I think this is not good either for the baby girl, she'll have lots of trouble identifying herself regarding her birth and nationality.

I know for a fact that a kid born on a plane is a citizen of the origin of the airline. In this case Aereoflot is from Russia, so the girl is russian. If the little girl had been born in an American Airlines flight, or a America West, she would be a US citizen, if she was born in a Cubana de Aviacion flight, she´d be cuban and so on...
