Twelve folks had been injured throughout turbulence on a Qatar Airways flight from Doha to Ireland that landed safely on May 26, Dublin airport authorities mentioned.

The incident comes every week after a passenger died and dozens had been injured when a Singapore Airlines flight from London hit extreme turbulence and was diverted to Bangkok.

Six passengers and 6 crew members suffered accidents within the newest incident, when Qatar Airways flight QR017 endured turbulence over Turkey, Dublin airport mentioned in a press release.

The flight landed as scheduled shortly earlier than 1:00 pm (1200 GMT) on May 26, it added.

“Upon landing, the aircraft was met by emergency services, including airport police and our fire and rescue department, due to six passengers and six crew [12 total] on board reporting injuries after the aircraft experienced turbulence while airborne over Turkey.

“The Dublin Airport staff continues to offer full help on the bottom to passengers and airline workers,” the statement said.

A British man died and more than 100 people were injured when Singapore Airlines flight SQ321 endured extreme turbulence last Tuesday, forcing the plane to make an emergency landing in Bangkok, where several people are still being treated in hospital.

Passengers and crew suffered skull, brain and spine injuries when they were thrown violently around the cabin during the terrifying high-altitude ordeal.

Singapore Airlines have since tightened their seatbelt guidelines.

Air security specialists say that passengers are sometimes too informal about sporting seatbelts, leaving them in danger if the airplane hits surprising turbulence.

Scientists additionally warn that so-called clear air turbulence, which is invisible to radar, is getting worse due to local weather change.
