Two JetBlue Planes Collide at Boston Airport


On Thursday morning, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) confirmed that two JetBlue planes collided on the tarmac at Boston Logan International Airport.

The collision happened when one aircraft accidentally bumped into another while entering an adjacent de-icing pad lane. Fortunately, no injuries were reported, but both planes sustained damages and have been taken out of service.

The affected flight passengers, 777 bound for Las Vegas and 551 bound for Orlando, will still reach their destinations on alternate aircraft after this incident.

“A JetBlue aircraft entering a de-icing pad lane at Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) came into contact with another JetBlue aircraft on an adjacent de-icing pad lane, causing damage to one aircraft’s winglet and the other aircraft’s tail section,” said according to a statement shared with Fox Business:

In a statement to Boston 25 News, the FAA confirmed the incident occurred early Thursday morning as well:

JetBlue Flight 777, an Airbus A321neo’s left winglet struck the right horizontal stabilizer of JetBlue Flight 551, an Airbus A321, around 6:40 a.m., local time on Thursday, February 8, while on the deicing pad at Boston Logan International Airport. The FAA will investigate.”

Similarly, JetBlue said they will be investigating the incident.

“Safety is JetBlue’s priority, and we will work to determine how and why this incident occurred,” JetBlue said.

There have been other incidents this year, apart from the one mentioned above. In January, the FAA announced an investigation into a situation at Chicago O’Hare International Airport where two planes collided.
