Two aircraft have been involved in what has been described as a minor collision at Teheran Imam Khomeini International Airport this morning.

The right winglet of a stationary Oman Air Boeing 737 aircraft, registered A4O-BV and operating flight WY462 to Muscat, was clipped by a Mahan Air’s A310 wing as it taxied past the Omani aircraft. The incident resulted in substantial damage for the Boeing 737.

A4O-BV registration belongs to a Boeing 737-800 delivered new to Oman Air less than two years ago.

An Oman Air spokesperson said:

“Oman Air flight WY 432, due to depart today from Tehran to Muscat, has been delayed as a result of an incident on the runway. No-one was hurt and no-one was at risk, but the aircraft must now be carefully inspected by Oman Air’s engineering team before it is declared fit to fly”.
