BERLIN – A woman who claimed to have been thrown into the air and injured during turbulence on a Ryanair flight has now settled her High Court Action.

This incident took place on a flight from Pisa to Brussels Charleroi and already happened 7 years ago.

According to media reports, she was waiting to go to one of the toilets, when the incident occurred. She landed on her left ankle and struck her head against a trolley.

Upon arrival, she was transferred to a hospital.

In a court hearing, which she attended from Australia via a video chat, she stated that she and Ryanair had settled outside of court.

The terms of the settlement are confidential.

She claimed that Ryanair failed to warn her of incoming turbulence.

Ryanair denied all claims and said that if the incident took place, “it was not caused by any act, default, neglect or omission by the airline.”

Turbulence can occur at any time without warning.
