Aerobridge at Delhi Airport partially damaged
New Delhi: An aerobridge at the Delhi
airport was partially damaged when a Jet Airways plane brushed
against it while docking late last month, with aviation
regulator DGCA initiating a probe.
The incident occurred on June 26 when the Airbus A-330
brushed against the aerobridge at the Terminal-3 of the IGI
Airport, squeezing a part of it, airport sources said, adding
that the bridge suffered "partial damage".
There was no damage to the aircraft, nor were any
injuries caused as there was no one nearby when the incident
occurred, they said.
While a Jet spokesperson confirmed the incident, the
airport sources termed it as "minor" saying the aerobridges
are built in such a manner so as to take most of the impact
and cause minimum damage to the aircraft.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation is already
probing the incident, the sources said.
