A China Eastern Airlines plane takes off at an airport in TaiyuanA China Eastern Airlines flight from Paris to the southwestern Chinese city of Kunming hit turbulence on Sunday injuring at least 26 people, media reports stated.

 
Passengers onboard flight MU774 suffered injuries such as fractures when strong turbulence caused them to hit the overhead lockers and were hit by falling baggage. At least four people were in a serious condition.

 
In a posting on its official Weibo account, China Eastern Airlines said that it had arranged relevant medical services for the flight’s passengers, without confirming details of the injuries. It added that all passengers should fasten safety belts during flights for safety.

 

This was the second incident the airline encountered within the week. On June 11, a China Eastern Airlines flight MU736 bound for Shanghai, had to make an emergency landing and return to Sydney after a hole emerged in one of the aircraft’s engines.

 
We felt strong turbulence twice and minor turbulence three times. The process lasted about 10 minutes,” media reports quoted a passenger surnamed Zhang, as saying.
