Amritsar-Delhi Air India hits severe turbulence mid-air; three passengers injured


An Air India flight from Amritsar to Delhi experienced a severe turbulence last week leaving at least three passengers with minor injuries. A window panel also fell off during the incident.

The incident happened on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner (VTANI) soon after the flight took off from Amritsar. The turbulence continued for 10 to 15 minutes. Following the incident, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has launched a probe. It also informed the Aircraft Accident Investigation Board.

The duration of Amristar-Delhi flight is about 35 minutes and on April 19, the flight was full with over 240 passengers, another official said.

A 50-second long video clip of happenings inside that flight that has gone viral shows an air hostess trying to fix the window panel that came off. The video clip has been circulated in WhatsApp groups and social media platforms.

A similar incident had taken place in a Singapore Airlines flight in October 2014, while landing in Mumbai.
