JAKARTA, May 4, 2016

Etihad Airways flight EY474 from Abu Dhabi to Jakarta on May 4, operated by an Airbus A330-200 aircraft, encountered severe and unexpected turbulence about 45 minutes prior to arrival at Soekarno Hatta International Airport.
A total of 31 passengers and crew were injured. Twenty two have been released from the airport clinic after being treated by paramedics for minor injuries. Nine other passengers and a crew member were taken to a local hospital, the airline said in a statement.
As a result, flight EY475 from Jakarta to Abu Dhabi on May 4 has been cancelled.

Etihad Airways has sent a support team from its home base in Abu Dhabi, and is assisting passengers scheduled to travel on this flight, by rebooking them on alternate flights or providing hotel accommodation, the airline said.
