The incredible story comes after a baby girl named Haven was born on a flight halfway from Dubai to Manila last month.

Back in August, a baby girl was born on a flight halfway from Dubai to Manila.

She was named 'Haven' and the airline, The Philippine carrier Cebu Pacific, awarded the baby girl with a rare birthday present: one million points, The Guardian reported.

And in June, a Saudi Arabian Airlines passenger jet had to make an emergency landing at Heathrow Airport after a woman gave birth mid-flight. In this case, though, there was no special birthday present awarded to the newborn.
