FAA probes Boston aircraft collision

Thursday, 08 Feb, 2024 0

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating a tarmac aircraft collision between two JetBlue planes.

The agency says the two planes collided at Boston Logan International Airport as they were both preparing to depart.

They were traveling to Orlando and Las Vegas.

JetBlue said the Las Vegas bound plane hit the Orlando bound jet on a nearby de-icing pad lane.

It caused winglet damage to the Vegas bound plane and tail section damage of the other, the airline said.

Both sets of passengers had to be deplaned and fly on replacement aircraft.

Both planes were taken out of service for repair.

“Safety is JetBlue’s priority, and we will work to determine how and why this incident occurred,” JetBlue said.

There were no injuries reported, the FAA said.
