A JetBlue plane was struck by a Southwest plane on the ground at Boston’s Logan Airport Monday morning but no injuries were reported.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the incident just after 7 a.m. EST when a the Southwest Boeing 737 jet with 108 passengers bound for Kansas City was damaged after it struck the parked JetBlue plane.

The left winglet of the Southwest plane struck the right horizontal stabilizer of a JetBlue A-320 aircraft, Massachusetts Port Authority spokesman Matthew Brelis, told The Boston Globe. He added that the incident didn’t affect other flight operations.





There were no passengers or crew aboard the JetBlue aircraft, which wasn’t damaged.

Southwest said in an e-mailed statement that the company was working to reroute the passengers on board Flight 4552 and that aircraft was taken out of service for repairs and inspection.

“I was glad it happened on ground and not in flight,’’ Marcia Mitchell Cardello told Boston’s WBZ-AM, the Globe said.

Another passenger, Aubin Dubois of Dallas, told the station it felt like the plane got stuck.

“I felt like we weren’t able to move,” she said, according to the Globe.
