An Afghan Refugee Gave Birth On A Connecting Evacuation Flight From Dubai To The UK


An Afghan refugee gave birth to a healthy baby girl, named Havva (which translates to ‘air’), onboard an Afghan evacuation flight from Dubai to Britain.

26-year-old Soman Noori went into labour 30,000 feet up in the Kuwaiti airspace on Saturday, August 28 and with assistance from the Turkish Airlines crew members, she was able to deliver without any complications. Both the mother and newborn were reported to have been in stable condition and in good health post the birth.

Havva is Soman Noori and her husband’s third child. They have two young sons and the picture of the now family-of-five is simply heartwarming

The couple and their kids fled Afghanistan and will now settle in Birmingham in the United Kingdom.

The flight that took off from Kabul and pit stopped at Dubai before leaving to the UK had no doctors onboard, thus it was completely up to the crew members to help deliver the baby girl in line with their training

The flight made a precautionary landing at Kuwait but soon after continued its journey towards its destination

The internet is all praise for the supportive crew members of Turkey’s national flag carrier
