Other passengers are being treated for bone fractures, scalp lacerations and soft tissue injuries caused by falling baggage or collisions with overhead lockers.

At least four injured passengers are said to be in a critical condition, the agency said.

China Eastern issued a statement on Sunday morning, saying that passengers were being provided with medical help, while also reminding travelers to always wear their seat belts when flights are descending to the ground.

Xinhua said (in Chinese) that two violent bumps and many small bumps occurred over about 10 minutes.

It was the second incident involving the airline recently.


"I was on the flight, and I felt like I would not survive", one passenger posted on Weibo after the incident. One passenger told Xinhua that the plane was almost full.

The injured were taken to the First People's Hospital of Yunnan Province and Yan'an Hospital Affiliated to Kunming Medical University, after the flight landed around 9am an hour later than scheduled, local authorities said.

While turbulence doesn't pose a major danger to the plane, some scientists think it will become more common in the coming years thanks to a changing climate- leading to less comfortable and possibly longer flights.

It's unclear when exactly the turbulence struck.

A China Eastern Airlines Airbus A330 aircraft sits on the tarmac at Sydney International Airport in Australia.
