3 More Airplane Babies: Lufthansa, S.K.Y., Jet Star

planeIt’s been a while since I posted about babies born on airplanes (and named after that fact!). So here are two three at once:

  • Barbara Lufthansa – In July of 1965, a baby girl born on a Lufthansa flight from Germany to New York was named Barbara Lufthansa, middle name in honor of the airline.
  • Shona Kirsty Yves (S.K.Y.) – In 1991, a baby girl born on a British Airways flight from Ghana to London was named Shona Kirsty Yves, the initials of her three given names spelling out the word “sky.”
  • Saw Jet Star – In April of 2016, a baby boy born on a Jetstar Asia flight from Singapore to Myanmar was named Saw Jet Star, “Jet Star” in honor of the airline.

And here are some of the earlier airplane babies:

Baby Born on AirAsia Flight Named AirAsia

planeAbout two weeks ago, a Malaysian woman gave birth aboard an AirAsia flight from Penang to Kuching. What did she name her son? Asia Liew Ya Hang, in honor of the budget airline. She says “Ya Hang” means “AirAsia” in Mandarin, and that:

It’s the best name I can give my son who was the first baby born on the airline’s plane.

Dr. Ronald Tang, who happened to be on the same flight, helped with the delivery. Here’s his opinion of the baby’s name:

Am also glad to hear the name Asia Liew Ya Hang for the baby, as it is huge and signifies rich and fast growing over the continent with many possibilities, like AirAsia.

That quote that leaves me confused…but also strangely optimistic.
