One person died and others were injured aboard a Singapore Airlines flight that encountered turbulence en route from London to its intended destination of Singapore, the airline said Tuesday.

The jet, a Boeing 777-300ER that departed London's Heathrow Airport on Monday evening, was diverted to Bangkok and landed Tuesday afternoon after encountering turbulence, Singapore Airlines said.

It said the flight had a total of 211 passengers and 18 crew on board.

"We are working with the local authorities in Thailand to provide the necessary medical assistance, and sending a team to Bangkok to provide any additional assistance needed," the airline said in a Facebook post.
