Bali to Japan Flight Encounters Mid-Air Turbulence

Minor Injuries to 10 Passenger and Crew Reported on Board GA882 on Wednesday, June 1, 2005, from Bali to Osaka.

(6/5/2005) A Garuda Indonesia A330 aircraft carrying 161 passengers and 14 crew from Bali to Osaka encountered mid-air turbulence while on a long final approach to Kansai International Airport.

The incident affecting GA882 which occurred at about 6 a.m. local time on Wednesday, June 1, 2005, resulted in minor injuries to 5 passengers and 5 crew, with the aircraft landing without further incident and on time.

Turbulent and unstable air are occasionally encountered over Japanese air space. A similar incident occurred to an Eva Air flight in March near Tokyo's Narita Airport in which 47 people were injured, some suffering broken bones.
