Ryanair plane got hit by another plane in London Stansted!
Ryanair flight FR205 was waiting on the taxiway to depart to Dublin on Friday morning when it and a Primera Air flight to Malaga touched.
“One of our aircraft was stationary at the designated holding point on the taxiway at London Stansted Airport on Friday morning when the winglet of a Primera Air aircraft (taxiing behind) scraped its tail stabiliser,” said Ryanair in a statement.
Both aircraft were under the instruction of London Stansted Air Traffic Control at the time of the incident.
The two planes were checked by engineers for damages. Ryanair said it had transferred passengers to another aircraft to “minimise delay”.
Primera Air had to depart another plane for its passengers, which resulted in a major delay for affected passengers.
Stansted Airport said its airfield operations were “briefly suspended as a precaution”. No passengers or crew were injured.
