British Airways flight collides with Emirates Airplane at Dubai International Airport

Late last night local time, the British Airways Airbus A350 struck into the Emirates’ Boeing 777 at the Dubai International Airport (DXB). While no one was injured, aviation news outlet Simple Flying says the collision left with damage on the horizontal stabilizer of both the planes, grounding both the aircrafts in the foreseeable future.

It’s one of the very times an Emirates aircraft has been damaged on ground. Last August saw an Emirates A380 suffer damages to its nose after routine maintenance.

Investigation underway

While the extent of the damage is still being evaluated, both the airlines issued statements claiming they’re investing the mishap and the British Airways airplane will be “fully assessed before it is cleared to fly.”

From both the planes’ data on Flight Radar 24, the British Airways Airbus A350, flight BAW106 is one of the latest airplanes being manufactured hardly a year ago, having recently flown to Tel Aviv, London and to Dubai. Meanwhile, the Emirates Boeing 777, flight A6-EBR, is a 13-year-old aircraft with recent voyages to Vienna, Riyadh and Seoul.
