Delta flight redirected so woman can give birth
SALT LAKE CITY, UT.–Delta flight 2566 from San Francisco to Minneapolis was redirected to Salt Lake City to accommodate for a pregnant woman on the plane.
The woman started having “pregnancy complications,” so she was taken to University Hospital in SLC where she gave birth by way of emergency C-section, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
Delta Air Lines posted a statement on their website that addresses air traveling while pregnant.
“Delta does not impose restrictions on flying for pregnant women, so a medical certificate is not required to travel. Keep in mind, however, that ticket change fees and penalties cannot be waived for pregnancy. If you’re traveling after your eight month, it’s a good idea to check with your doctor to be sure travel is not restricted.”
