A pair of airplanes clipped wings at Newark Liberty International Airport Saturday morning — but no one was injured, officials said.
A Southwest Airlines plane bound for Fort Lauderdale was taxiing at Terminal A just after 7 a.m. when its left winglet grazed an airplane that was being de-iced before heading to Nashville, the airport and the airline said.
The incident resulted in minor damage, but no one on or off the planes was injured, a Port Authority spokesperson said.
Passengers on the planes were being rebooked, the airport said.
"There is no higher priority for us than safety and we thank our customers for their understanding as we apologize ahead of their delayed travel," Southwest said in a statement. "The aircraft are out-of-service for review."
It wasn’t immediately clear how the collision happened or if the incident was weather-related.
Snow blanketed the tri-state with a few inches of snow early Saturday morning.
