A Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 collided with a JetBlue Airways Airbus A320 at Boston Logan airport today while it was pushing back from its gate.

The Southwest 737 was departing for a flight to Kansas City. While pushing back, its wingtip struck and damaged the right horizontal stabiliser of the JetBlue A320, which was parked at a neighbouring gate.

There were no passengers or crew on board the A320, registration N643, says JetBlue.

No one was injured in the incident, says Southwest. "The aircraft is out of service for repairs and inspections," it adds. There were 108 passengers on the Southwest 737, who are being re-accommodated on other flights for their journey to Kansas City.
