A Qatar Airways Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner encountered severe turbulence while flying over Turkey on its route from Doha to Dublin on May 26, 2024. 

The flight, QR017, landed safely at Dublin Airport at approximately 1:00 PM. Upon arrival, emergency services met the aircraft. Dublin Airport released a statement noting that 12 people on board sustained injuries due to the turbulence.

“Qatar Airways flight QR017 from Doha landed safely as scheduled at Dublin Airport shortly before 13.00 on Sunday,” the statement read. “Upon landing, the aircraft was met by emergency services, including Airport Police and our Fire and Rescue department, due to 6 passengers and 6 crew [12 total] on board reporting injuries after the aircraft experienced turbulence while airborne over Turkey.”
