Nok Air jet hit by Thai AirAsia bus

Online reporters

A Thai AirAsia shuttle bus hit a Nok Air plane at Don Mueang airport on Friday, causing damage but no injuries.

The Boeing 737-86J was parked at the apron No.35 at the Bangkok airport when the passenger bus hit its nose and the front left part at 10.55pm, Thai media reported.

Nok Air said in a statement on Saturday it would check whether the damage affected the structure of the plane, which would be suspended from service for repairs.

“In the meantime, some passengers might be affected or experience flight delays due to the change of schedules,” it said.

Thai AirAsia said the collision was an accident and that it was cooperating with the investigation.
