‘(The) service from Honolulu to Sydney encountered unexpected severe turbulence,’ a spokesperson for the airline told 7NEWS.

‘Four passengers and three flight attendants were initially treated by a doctor on board and our crew members, in consultation with physicians on the ground.’

‘Two passengers were taken to St George and one passenger was taken to Prince of Wales,’ a spokesperson said.

The specific plane is now undergoing a ‘thorough inspection’, which will impact the departure time of flight HA452 from Sydney to Honolulu.
