Heathrow is the busiest airport in Europe and the seventh busiest in the world

Two aeroplanes had a ‘minor collision’ on the airfield at Heathrow Airport on Wednesday night, September 28. No one was injured as passengers and crew were safely disembarked as an investigation has been launched.

The collision took place around 8pm on the ground with no significant impacts on arrivals or departures of other flights. The airport has continued to operate as usual as an investigation is underway. The incident involved Korean Air and Icelandair aircraft.

Emergency services attended to the scene last night but no one required treatment. The Air Accident Investigation Branch have said an investigation is underway but no more information can be given at this time.

A Heathrow Airport spokesperson said: “Yesterday evening our teams responded to a minor collision between two aircraft on the airfield. There were no injuries as a result of the incident and all passengers and crew were safely disembarked. An investigation with appropriate authorities is now underway.”

The London Fire Service attended alongside London Ambulance Service. An ambulance service spokesman said last night: “We were called today at 8.06pm to reports of an incident at Heathrow airport.

“We sent a number of resources to the scene including members of our Hazardous Area Response Team (HART), a clinical team leader, a cycle responder and an incident response officer. We attended a reception centre for passengers but nobody required treatment or needed to be taken to hospital.”
