A Cebu Pacific flight from Dubai to Manila made an unexpected stop in Hyderabad, India on Sunday morning after a pregnant passenger went on labor, according to the Manila International Airport Authority.

The MIAA said the diverted flight was supposed to arrive at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport at 11:55 a.m. “No information yet for the new estimated time of arrival and details on the passenger,” it added.

In a statement, Cebu Pacific said flight 5J015 was diverted to the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport at 10:33 a.m. Manila time (6:33 a.m. Dubai time) due to the medical emergency.


“CEB is coordinating with relevant authorities in Hyberabad to ensure that immediate medical assistance will be provided for the passenger,” stated the airline.

“We regret any inconvenience this situation may have caused. We sincerely hope for our passengers’ understanding as the safety of everyone on board remains our highest priority,” it said, adding that it will release more updates soon. JE/rga
