Three airplane passengers were injured in the air over Texas on Wednesday as Storm Eboni caused treacherous flying conditions across the US.

The Dallas-bound American Airlines flight managed to land safely at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport on Wednesday night, despite initial reports suggesting it had been damaged by ferocious winds.

A passenger and a flight attendant were hospitalized with complaints of knee pain and neck pain, and one other person was treated at the scene – a spokesperson for the airline revealed.

Storm Eboni is the first wave of heavy snow and rain expected to strike the US through the end of the holiday weekend.

The 75 passengers on board the flight, which was returning to the US from Mexico, stayed in a hotel in Austin on Wednesday night, to be transferred back to Dallas on Thursday.

Thousands of flights were grounded in Midwestern airports over Christmas due to heavy snowfall, with forecasters warning the worst is yet to come as the storm sweeps across the country.

Airlines are waiving ticket change fees for passengers due to fly to, from or through several airports in Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota.

Horrifying footage posted on Twitter by a passenger on another Texas-bound flight, Jen Vaughn, showed huge lightning storms turning the sky purple as she flew just hours after the American Airlines plane was forced to land in Austin.

Heavy snow and rainstorms from Storm Eboni are also predicted to create dangerous road conditions for millions of travelers heading out after Christmas.
