  1. According to the United Nations, a child born in-flight is considered to have been born in the country where the airline is registered. Birth certificates of babies born on flights heading out of a specific country will probably be lodged in that country's public records (rather than in the records of the destination countries). Many countries grant automatic citizenship to any babies born on their airlines; this may result in a baby having dual citizenship.
