12 individuals sustained injuries aboard a Qatar Airways flight from Doha to Dublin, Ireland, on Sunday after turbulence impacted the aircraft.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner landed safely as scheduled at Dublin Airport Sunday afternoon.

“Qatar Airways flight QR017 from Doha landed safely as scheduled at Dublin Airport shortly before 13.00 on Sunday. Upon landing, the aircraft was met by emergency services, including Airport Police and our Fire and Rescue department, due to 6 passengers and 6 crew [12 total] on board reporting injuries after the aircraft experienced turbulence while airborne over Turkey,” Dublin Airport said.

“All passengers were assessed for injury prior to disembarking the aircraft. Eight passengers were subsequently taken to hospital. The return flight to Doha (flight QR018) is scheduled to operate as normal this afternoon, albeit with a delay. Flight operations at Dublin Airport were unaffected and continue as normal this afternoon,” the statement added.

From the New York Post:

The tumultuous flight comes less than a week after a 73-year-old British man was killed and over 30 others were injured after a Singapore Airlines Boeing flight on May 21 hit severe turbulence and plunged 6,000 feet, sending unrestrained passengers flying throughout the cabin and crashing into overhead bins.

The Boeing 777-300ER jet was carrying 211 passengers and 18 crew members was headed to Singapore from London when it was forced to make an emergency landing in Bangkok. Singapore Airlines CEO Goh Choon Phong offered his “deepest apologies to everyone affected” in a video posted to the company’s Facebook page Wednesday.

Phong said the airline is “deeply saddened” by the incident and is “very sorry for the traumatic experience” those on board flight SQ321 from London to Singapore went through.

BREAKING: One Dead, Dozens Injured On Commercial Flight, ‘Severe Turbulence’

"At least 12 passengers have been injured aboard a Qatar Airways Boeing 787 after severe turbulence This comes mere days after a passenger was killed and dozens injured aboard another Boeing aircraft headed to Singapore," Nick Sortor commented.

"The 787 is supposed to have a robust anti turbulence system that allows for a smoother flight experience, but reports of malfunction are becoming more common," he added.

NBC News reports:

Qatar Airways said in a statement that “a small number of passengers and crew sustained minor injuries in flight and are now receiving medical attention.”

It said “the matter is now subject to an internal investigation.”

WATCH:

Somehow, mainstream media blamed the severe turbulence on fictional climate change.

"While turbulence-related fatalities are rare, injuries have piled up over the years. Some meteorologists and aviation analysts note that reports of turbulence encounters also have been increasing and point to the potential impacts that climate change may have on flying conditions," NBC News stated.
