Baby born aboard JetBlue flight to Fort Lauderdale

A baby boy was born aboard a JetBlue flight enroute to Fort Lauderdale Friday.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (WTHR) – A baby boy was born aboard a JetBlue flight enroute to Fort Lauderdale Friday.

In a statement, JetBlue said Friday's Flight 1954 from San Juan, Puerto Rico, to Fort Lauderdale was met by medical personnel "following the onboard delivery of our youngest customer to date."

"We’d like to thank the crew and medical professionals on board for their quick action under pressure, and wish the new mother and son all the best. Flight 1954 was operated on aircraft N523JB, coincidentally named, 'Born To Be Blue,'" JetBlue's corporate communications manager Jennifer Dang told NBC 6 in a statement on Saturday.

JetBlue said it wants to rename the "Born to be Blue" airplane after the "newest baby blue and our youngest customer ever."
