What is the baby’s citizenship when born on an airplane in flight?

The United Nations considers a child born on an airplane in-flight to have been born in the airplane’s registered country. This is due to admiralty law which says that if the vessel you are traveling on is French, you are technically on French soil. Some countries point to the city where the child first disembarked the plane as the place of birth and to the airplane’s registered country as the place of citizenship. Of course, citizenship and birthplace are two different topics — citizenship is typically a more significant issue and may require some paperwork while writing a child’s birthplace on a birth certificate is often a less legally substantial consideration.
