“Delta Care Team members are mobilizing to connect with customers on Delta Flight 175 that experienced severe turbulence before landing safely in Atlanta Tuesday,” a Delta spokesperson confirmed.

The extent of the injuries is unknown at this time. The aircraft was carrying 151 passengers and 14 crew members.

According to a study published in June by researchers at the University of Reading in England, the annual duration of severe turbulence has increased by 55% from 17.7 hours in 1979 to 27.4 hours in 2020. Researchers have suggested climate change is to blame, as warmer air from CO2 emissions increases wind in jet streams.
