One passenger and five crew members were slightly injured when a Thai Airways International flight from Jakarta hit turbulence on Monday, an airline executive said.
THAI president Charamporn Jotikasthira said Tuesday that Flight TG434 from the Indonesian capital hit clear-air turbulence while the aircraft was flying over Singapore, injuring seven people, one of them a passenger.
The Boeing 777-200 aircraft was safe and the injured were sent to a hospital after the plane landed at Suvarnabhumi airport, Mr Charamporn said. All were allowed to go home on Monday, he added.
The plane, with 72 passengers and 12 crewmembers, left Jakarta at 12.35pm and arrived in Bangkok at 3.40pm.
The incident was posted on the Facebook account of Kru P'Birth, but the post and pictures were later removed from the page.
