Baby named after AirAsia after being born on plane!October 28th, 2009 - 6:04 pm ICT by ANI
Kuala Lumpur, Oct 28 (ANI): A Chinese baby boy, who was born aboard an AirAsia plane, has been named Asia Liew Ya Hang after the plane.
His mother Liew Siaw Hsia said the Chinese name ‘Ya Hang’ means ‘AirAsia’ in Mandarin.
“It’s the best name I can give my son who was the first baby born on the airline’s plane,” the Star Online quoted her as saying in a statement.
The mother and baby are currently at the Putrajaya Hospital.
Asia Liew Ya Hang was safely delivered on board Flight AK 6506 on October 21 when the aircraft was about 800m in the air.
The flight from Penang to Kuching was diverted to the low-cost carrier terminal here when Liew went into premature labour.
The airline has presented Liew and the baby free flight tickets for life to celebrate the birth. (ANI)
