Southwest Jet Gets Into a Fender-Bender With JetBlue Plane

Jun 09, 2014

A Southwest airliner backed into a JetBlue plane parked at Boston's Logan International Airport on Monday.

Though both planes were damaged, no passengers were injured in the crash, CBS Boston reports. The wingtip of the Southwest Boeing 737 hit the Jetblue Airbus 320's horizontal stabilizer just after 7 a.m.

Passengers onboard the Southwest plane described the incident as a "bump" and "vibration" to WBZ-TV.

A spokesperson for the Massachusetts Port Authority said the JetBlue plane wasn't carrying any passengers when it was hit, while the Southwest plane was bound for Kansas City, NBC News reports.

“Our employees are working to get the 108 customers scheduled on the flight to Kansas City re-accommodated on other flights to complete their journey," Southwest Airlines said in a statement to WBZ-TV. "The aircraft is out of service for repairs and inspections."

Airport operations were not affected.
