Six passengers were injured after an Air Arabia flight to Karachi suffered severe turbulence yesterday.

The Airbus A320-200, registration A6-ANT was descending towards Karachi when the aircraft encountered clear air turbulence. The aircraft landed safely. The return flight was delayed by four hours to undergo inspection.
A report by Pakistan's Civil Aviation Authority said some overhead lockers opened as result of the turbulence causing luggage to drop onto passengers causing the injuries. Witnesses on the flight said that some passengers without seat belts fastened had also suffered minor injuries after hitting the cabin ceiling.
