This is the moment passengers screamed in terror as a plane was hit by extreme turbulence while flying over China .

Air China flight CA8524, travelling from Xi'an to Wenzhou, encountered strong air currents while flying at high altitude.

In footage taken during the flight, passengers' cries can be heard in the cabin as the plane shakes.

One traveller told local media that he could see the plane wings vibrating as the plane bumped up and down.

Air China said an investigation showed that the plane experienced short-term turbulence due to strong air currents, according to local media.

The company said the plane crew dealt with the situation efficiently and according to the procedures, which prevented further incidents during the flight.

They said that with the cooperation of the passengers, the flight landed normally at Wenzhou Longwan Airport.

No injuries have been reported as a result of the incident.

Air China said that it will continue its mission to deliver safe and efficient services.

The video gained a lot of comments on Douyin, a video-sharing platform in China.

One user wrote: 'You suddenly turned your phone sideways, I thought it was going to turn over.'

Another said: 'In this situation, don't be nervous, take a deep breath, calm your mind, don't think wildly, and bite your ID card in your mouth.'

Turbulence is a sudden and sometimes violent change in airflow.

Irregular motions in the atmosphere create air currents that can cause passengers to experience bumps during a flight.
