Qantas 737 aeroplanes involved in minor incident at Perth airport

A minor incident between two Qantas passenger planes at Perth airport overnight has sparked an investigation by the national carrier.

The incident is understood to have occurred about 9pm on Sunday and involved two Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

A flight from Canberra was approaching the gate at a low speed when the wingtip clipped that of stationary aircraft at an adjacent gate.

In a statement, Qantas said customers and crew who were disembarking the stationary plane arriving from Brisbane “felt a jolt when the wingtips made contact”.

“After assessing the situation, the captain advised customers to continue to disembark as usual,” the spokesperson said.

“Engineers are inspecting both aircraft and an investigation is under way.”

No injuries were reported by customers or crew of either aircraft.
