An IndiGo aircraft parked at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) in Mumbai was hit by a step ladder of rival carrier SpiceJet amid strong winds, an official said.
The wing and engine cowling of the aircraft suffered some damage in the incident, a spokesperson of Mumbai International Airport Ltd (MIAL) said in a statement.
Due to partial operations, a sizeable number of aircraft are grounded at airports across the country.
IndiGo said SpiceJet’s step ladder got detached from its parked position and hit its parked aircraft. The incident, which took place Saturday morning, is being probed by the authorities.
