  • Turkish Airlines encounters extreme turbulence

Turkish Airlines officials in a statement early Sunday confirmed the flight carrying 326 passengers and 18 crew members "encountered an unusual turbulence about 40 minutes before landing" in NY.

The Turkish Airlines Flight 1 reportedly encountered the turbulence about 45 minutes before landing at JFK.

At least 29 people suffered non-life-threatening injuries due to heavy turbulence on a flight that landed Saturday at New York's JFK Airport, the Fire Department of NY tweeted.

NBC New York reported those hurt had mostly suffered bumps and bruises, though the full extent of the injuries is not known at this time.

The flight was on a Boeing 777.

Coleman said most of the passengers were treated inside an airport terminal, and that other airport operations were not affected.

The plane was carrying more than 300 passengers and crew members.

The National Weather Service's Aviation Weather Center had issued an advisory for severe turbulence over New England on Saturday evening. Turkish Airlines officials were not immediately available for comment. New Jersey's Newark airport closed its runways earlier in the day after a cargo plane flying to Florida from Canada was forced to make an emergency landing.
