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

A purported 50-second long video clip of happenings inside that flight showed an air hostess trying to fix the window panel that came off and pacifying an elderly woman passenger seated on that particular window seat

As flight AI 462 from Amritsar to Delhi climbed after take off on Thursday the aircraft encountered "severe turbulence", causing the inner layer of a passenger's window to come loose a spokesperson told Newsweek.

Video footage, filmed by a fellow passenger, has now emerged showing a flight attendant incredibly attempting to place a window and its frame back in place as a female passenger cries with fear. In the terrifying incident, at least three passengers suffered minor injuries.

India's Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and Aircraft Accident Investigation Board (AAIB) did not respond to a request for comment. The reason behind window panel off was due to severe turbulence the airline faced. In the video, an air hostess can be seen trying to fix the window panel that came off and pacifying an elderly woman passenger seated on that particular window seat.

The flight from Amristar to Delhi was exclusively purported to final round 30 minutes, with turbulence hitting the aircraft quickly after take-off on account of unhealthy climate.




The flight was carried out by the Boeing 787, which has been in operation for six years.

The Air India aircraft was rocked by turbulence shortly after take-off because the aircraft reached 15,000ft after which lasted almost half of its journey.

According to NDTV, the Dreamliner is also fitted with a state-of-the-art turbulence dampening system which is created to counteract the effects of instability during a flight.

With the recent spate of airline incidents around the world, passengers' confidence in air travel is... going out the window (sorry). The outside window did not break and there was no de-pressursation. The overhead panel cover of a seat also reportedly got cracks. The SIA Flight 424 hit sudden turbulence while landing in Mumbai, leaving 22 passengers and crew injured. All the three injured passengers were taken to the hospital when the flight landed in Delhi. Later, they took their connecting flights for onward journey.
