Flight SQ803, scheduled to depart at 08:45hrs, was taxiing out to the runway for departure when its right wing-tip struck the tail of another aircraft, an SIA spokesman has confirmed. Reports online say the other aircraft was a stationary Air China 737-800.
The SIA 777 was returned to the gate and an assessment is being carried out, adds the SIA spokesman, who says the flight was subsequently cancelled. All 248 passengers have been put up in Beijing for the night.
While SIA did not go into details behind the cause of the incident, reports suggest that the airport was shrouded in fog this morning. China’s state media, citing an official from China’s Civil Aviation Administration, has also reported that pilot error was a likely cause of the collision.
