SINGAPORE, June 11 (Xinhua/UNB) -- Singapore Airlines (SIA) has offered 10,000 U.S. dollars to passengers who suffered minor injuries on board of the turbulence-hit flight SQ321 in May, the company said Tuesday.

SIA would invite passengers who sustained serious injuries to discuss a compensation offer to meet their specific circumstances.
