PTC News Desk: An IndiGo aircraft grazed the wings of Air India Express at the Kolkata airport on Wednesday, prompting strict action from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

The aviation regulator launched a probe into an incident and put the pilots of the Indigo aircraft off duty.

“The wingtip of a taxiing aircraft of another airline grazed one of our aircraft, which was stationary and awaiting clearance to enter the runway at Kolkata for a scheduled operation to Chennai,” Air India said.

According to the statement, the aircraft returned to the bay following the incident, and a further investigation is underway, with the airline collaborating with the regulator and airport authorities.

"We apologise for the inconvenience caused to guests due to external circumstances,” the spokesperson further stated.
