SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines (SIA) has confirmed that one of its planes hit a Sydney Airport aerobridge on Monday (May 26).

An SIA spokesperson told Channel NewsAsia that flight SQ231, an Airbus A380 that took off from Singapore and which was scheduled to land in Sydney at 10.25am on Monday, “made contact” with an aerobridge.

“There were no injuries to the 285 passengers and 26 crew onboard,” the spokesperson said, adding that the airline is in the process of servicing the aircraft.

An outbound flight from Sydney to Singapore on the same aircraft was cancelled and affected customers were accommodated on other flights, SIA said.

The spokesperson declined to comment on weather conditions at the time of the incident, citing an ongoing investigation.

Last Wednesday, an SIA flight veered off the runway while landing at the Yangon International Airport in Myanmar. There were no reports of injuries in the mishap.
