Arlington, VA

A US Airways flight arriving at Reagan National Airport hit severe turbulence this morning, injuring at least two flight attendants.

Flight 1223 from Providence, R.I. hit the turbulence as it was preparing to land at Reagan National, according to US Airways spokesperson Andrew Christie.

The flight landed safely and no other people on board were hurt. An ambulance met the plane at the terminal and took the two women to Virginia Hospital Center with non-life threatening injuries.

The Airbus A319 jet was carrying 64 passengers and 5 crew members at the time.

“Our top priority at US Airways is always the safety and well being of our customers and employees,” Christie said.
