Published on : Sunday, May 8, 2016

HK FLIGHTA HONG KONG AIRLINES flight today hit severe turbulence over Borneo after taking off from the Indonesian resort island of Bali injuring 17 passengers, an airport official said.

 

The extreme weather forced Hong Kong-bound Flight CRK 6704 carrying 204 passengers and 12 crew to return to Denpasar.

 

“Of the 17 people injured, 12 had to be admitted to a hospital for further treatment while five others were treated in the airport clinic and have been released,” said Trikora Harjo, general manager of Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport.

 

The Airbus A330-200 was not seriously damaged and has been parked at the airport for further investigation, Harjo said.

 
Although most of the passengers suffered bruises but were conscious and able to walk, he added.

 

It was the second turbulence incident involving an Airbus 300-200 in Indonesia this week. An Etihad Airways flight was hit by turbulence just before landing in Jakarta on Wednesday, leaving 31 passengers injured.

 

The airline further said the turbulence had also damaged cabin storage areas on Flight EY474 from Abu Dhabi to Jakarta.
