On August 12, 2020, police received a call from the airport after the incident between two Airbus A321s on the west apron.
One HK Express Airbus passenger plane (registration unknown) rammed into the back of a similar A321 (registered B-LEF). The incident has reportedly happened during towing and no passengers were involved.
Both aircraft have suffered damage and no casualties were reported.
Hong Kong Express suspended all operations in March 2019. The low-cost arm of Cathay Pacific has begun gradually resuming flight operations in early August 2020. However, planespotters.net data suggests that the majority of the airline’s 25 Airbus aircraft remain grounded.
