Eleven individuals were hurried to the health center Tuesday after their Delta flight struck extreme turbulence as it neared Atlanta, according to authorities.

Delta Air Lines Flight 175 from Milan, Italy, to Atlanta “experienced extreme turbulence” prior to landing securely at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Delta stated in a declaration.

The eleven hurt guests and team members were required to a health center and are anticipated to make a complete healing, a Delta representative stated.

The flight had to do with 40 miles northeast of Atlanta when the team reported serious turbulence, the Federal Aviation Authority stated in a declaration. The FAA stated it will be examining.

There were 151 travelers and 14 team members aboard the airplane, an Airbus A350-900, Delta stated. The flight landed in Atlanta at 7 p.m., according to FlightAware, a flight-tracking site.

It was not the only Delta flight to experience issues Tuesday. A flight from Salt Lake City to New York made an emergency situation landing in Denver after team reported a possible hydraulic problem, the airline company stated.

Another Delta flight from Memphis, Tenn., to Salt Lake City made an emergency situation landing in Wichita, Kan., after team reported a possible pressurization concern that needed running the airplane at a lower elevation.

A representative for Delta stated the team chose to divert the “out of an abundance of care,” and both airplanes ensured landings. The problems on the global and domestic flights were unassociated, the representative stated.

Both airplane functioned Wednesday. The FAA stated it is examining both events.
