Baby Named “SQ” After Being Born on Singapore Air Flight

Singapore Airlines A330



In 2008 a baby was born on a Finnair flight. And last year when a baby was born on an AirAsia flight, the mother and baby received free flights for life from AirAsia.

This time it’s the parents honouring the airline. According to Gulf News, a Filipina migrant worker from Dubai gave birth aboard a Singapore Airlines flight to Manila–and named the baby “SQ” after the carrier. SQ is Singapore Airlines’ ICAO IATA code.

(A note of irony: when my colleague Siva wrote about the AirAsia birth, he was cheeky and titled it “And the baby’s name is Air Asia!” This time the baby’s name really is the airline.)

The mother and baby are fine, or at least until they get exhausted explaining the name “SQ”.

    Nay, nay and thrice nay. SQ isn’t Singapore Airlines’ ICAO code, it’s Singapore Airlines’ IATA code. The ICAO code is SIA.
