Two passenger jets collide at Dubai airport

Two passenger jets clipped each other in a minor collision early Thursday morning July 22, 2021 on the taxiway at Dubai International Airport, airline officials said.

Both airplanes had passengers on board and were preparing for take-off when one of them hit the other, though no one was reported injured.

The airlines involved were Bahrain-based Gulf Air and the low-cost carrier FlyDubai.

Without identifying the other company, Gulf Air said its plane “was impacted on the tail by an aircraft of another airline” and that it was “working to reconnect all the passengers to their final destinations.”

Gulf Air operates flights from the Dubai airport to Bahrain International Airport in Manama.

In a separate statement, FlyDubai said one of its Boeing 737-800s was heading to Kyrgyzstan when it was involved in “a minor incident” that damaged a wingtip on one of the jets.

The carrier said all passengers were placed in another flight about six hours later.

“FlyDubai will work with the authorities to investigate the incident,” the company said.

The crash forced the airport to shut own one of its two runways for two hours, but no major delays were reported because of the incident.
