Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight PK-790 from Toronto to Lahore was suspended after the plane clipped the wing of an Air France plane while taxiing to its gate at Toronto Pearson International Airport.

According to the reporters, PIA plane’s wing tip hit the wing tip of the Air France plane which was parked at a gate at Terminal 3.

However, the good news is that no one was injured, and the damage to the plane is relatively minor.

A PIA spokesperson, when asked to comment, confirmed the incident and said the matter is under investigation.

“Apparently it was due to some error during marshalling by the ground personnel,” he said.

“There’s some damage to the equipment which may need replacement… All steps are being taken for making the aircraft serviceable as soon as possible.”

A night stop has been declared at Toronto and passengers who had checked in for the Toronto-Lahore flight have been provided hotel accommodation, he added.
