The Air Malta pilot who on Sunday flew a baby in an incubator to London in record time, this morning announced that the child is recovering well after undergoing a major operation.
Captain Robin Zammit said he is happy the baby not only survived the trip but is also recovering well. He thanked everyone for their prayers.
It was estimated that the baby only had a 50% chance of survival before the child left Malta for an urgent medical intervention which needed to be carried out in London.
The Air Malta crew did everything possible to make sure the baby arrived in London in record time, and a delay of 20 minutes was avoided. Negotiations were also carried out to allow the plane to land on the runway where planes take off rather than where they land.
