Kolkata: Two cabin crew members suffered "minor" injuries when a Kolkata-bound GoAir flight from Bhubaneswar experienced severe air turbulence on Tuesday, the airline said. However, none of the passengers was hurt and the aircraft made a safe landing at Kolkata airport, it said.

The number of passengers on board the turbulence-hit aircraft was not immediately known.

"GoAir flight G8 761 operating on Bhubaneswar-Kolkata route experienced severe turbulence wherein two crew members suffered minor injuries and were administered medication at the dispensary at Kolkata airport," a GoAir spokesperson said in the statement. For the last two days, weather has been extremely unforgiving, the airline said.
