Seven people have been injured when a plane hit turbulence while landing at Sydney's International Airport.

Five passengers and two crew members were taken to hospital after China Eastern flight MU777 from China encountered a shaky landing about 2.45pm on Tuesday.

Three suffered neck injuries, while the others suffered a lacerated jaw, minor head wound, wrist injury and back pain.

"The safety of our passengers is our primary concern and we have confirmed that all of the affected passengers are in a stable condition having received treatment for their injuries," said China Eastern's general manager for Oceania, Kathy Zhang.

"We are liaising with the hospitals to monitor the injured passengers and our focus for now is on the wellbeing of all our passengers and crew," she said.

The airline is attempting to contact the families of the injured passengers and has set up a hotline for those concerned.
