The Boeing 777-300 plane was flying from Dubai to Auckland, New Zealand, via Bali.

According to Arie, five of the injured ones were treated in the airport medical facility and two others were rushed to Bali International Medical Center (BIMC) hospital in Kuta, near the airport.
Due to checking procedures and cleansing works in the plane's cabin, departure of EK 450 flight to Auckland was delayed, Arie said. ■
