Toronto: A Pakistan International Airlines plane clipped the wing of an Air France plane while taxiing to its gate at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport on Tuesday evening.

The incident took place at 6 pm ET, according to Natalie Moncur, a spokeswoman for the Greater Toronto Airports Authority.

The Air France plane was parked at a gate at Terminal 3 when the Pakistan International Airlines plane taxied towards a gate nearby and the tips of the airplanes’ wings touched, Moncur said.

No injuries were reported and airport operations were unaffected, she added.

The PIA flight PK-789 had taken off from Lahore and landed in Toronto at around 5:50 pm, said Usman Sherazi, a passenger on board who added that he didn’t feel it when the planes made contact.

He said passengers were still waiting for their bags three hours after arrival.
