Two aircraft have been involved in a minor ramp collision at the UK’s regional East Midlands airport.

The airport’s operator says that one of the aircraft was taxiing when it “made contact” with a stationary aircraft on 30 April.

It states that the incident occurred on the central passenger apron.

Images on social media purporting to show the scene of the event indicate that Boeing 737s operated by Ryanair and Jet2 were involved.

“There were no passengers on either aircraft and no one was injured,” the operator adds. “Flights are continuing as scheduled.”

The extent of any damage to the aircraft is yet to be confirmed.

Meteorological data for East Midlands shows the airport was advising of reduced visibility owing to mist and fog during the morning.
