An aerobridge at the Delhi airport was partially damaged when a Jet Airways plane brushed against it while docking, prompting the aviation regulator DGCA to initiate a probe.

The incident occurred on June 26 when the Airbus A-330 grazed 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 neither any damage to the aircraft, nor were there any injuries, 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 probing the incident, the sources said.
