Delta spokesperson Susannah Thurston confirmed the news in a statement to the media on Saturday.
“As Delta flight 2488 from San Francisco to Boston was taxing to the gate upon arrival, the plane’s wing made contact with the wing of another Delta aircraft, which was parked at an adjacent gate and scheduled to operate on flight 154 from Boston to Dublin,” the statement read.
Customers from both flights were able to deplane safely, and the airline’s maintenance teams are evaluating both aircraft, according to the statement.
The statement added, “The safety of Delta’s customers and crew is our number one priority.”
