  • Air Canada flight

An Air Canada flight was diverted to Honolulu, Hawaii, after experiencing unusually severe turbulence that left 35 passengers with minor injuries, the airline said in a statement.

According toCTV News, on an Air Canada flight set to stop in Vancouver, an emergency landing was made called in Honolulu today.

A case of severe turbulence in June on a flight from Kosovo to France was captured on video, showing a flight attendant hitting the ceiling and another praying.

The plane landed safely in Honolulu at 9:45 a.m. Vancouver time, said Air Canada spokeswoman Angela Mah.

It was over the Pacific Ocean when the plane experienced what an Air Canada spokesperson described as "un-forecasted and sudden turbulence".

A source familiar with the situation told CTV News that at least two dozen passengers and one crew member were injured as a result.
