Baby Born on Flight to Kinshasa

A baby was born on a Brussels Airlines flight from Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, to Brussels last week.  Two doctors on the aircraft helped to deliver the baby on the plane.  The child is doing just fine.


  1. hmm I wonder what citizenship the baby will receive as she was born on a Belgian-registered aircraft? Also, how would they handle the immigration issue of the baby not having a passport? Maybe these are stupid questions, but I’m sure there’s an answer for them.
