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.
