·1 min read

Authorities responded to Logan Airport Friday night after they say two airplanes collided at a low rate of speed.

A Massachusetts Port Authority spokesperson said two Delta aircrafts struck each other while both were at gates. One airplane pushed back slowly from its gate and struck another Delta aircraft’s wing, according to transportation officials.

No passengers on either plane were injured.

When reached for comment, a spokesperson for Delta Airlines sent along the following statement:

“”We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience and delay in their travel plans following minor, low-speed contact of Delta flight 458 with Endeavor flight 5488, operating as a Delta Connection. All customers and crew members deplaned safely and normally. Customers will be re-accommodated on [a] new aircraft onto their destinations.”

The FAA is investigating the incident.
