A Turkish Airlines Boeing 777-300ER clipped a lighting pole at the new Istanbul airport today, causing damage to the tip of its right wing.
No injuries were reported from the incident.
The aircraft is registered TC-LJE, which Cirium's Fleets Analyzer shows is 2016-build model owned by Turkish Airlines.
The aircraft was taxiing for a flight to Ankara when incorrect directions were given by the tower, according to the airport authority.
It was subsequently taken to a Turkish Technic facility.
Istanbul airport became fully operational in April after its formal opening in October 2018.
