    Jetstar Asia shared images of Saw Jet Star, the baby born April 22 aboard one of their flights to Myanmar.

    A pregnant woman who unexpectedly went into labor and gave birth to a baby boy onboard a Jetstar Asia flight has named her son after the airline, NBC News reported.

    The baby, Saw Jet Star, was delivered safely on Flight 3K583 on April 22, thanks to three doctors on board the plane who stepped forward to help.

    "Both mother and son are in good health and have been discharged from the local hospital in Yangon," the airline said in a Facebook post this week.

    The airline donated approximately $744 of baby supplies to the family.

    Jetstar recognized crew member Saw Ler Htu, who "exercised utmost care and concern for the passenger," and visited the mother and child after they were admitted to a hospital.
