Two Boeing aircraft were involved in a ground collision at Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI) on September 19, 2023.

The incident occurred at around 09:00 local time, and although the two aircraft sustained structural damages, no injuries were reported.

The collision occurred when an Air Europa aircraft, a Boeing B737-800 (registration EC-MJU), coming from Barcelona Airport (BCN), was arriving at the terminal and collided with the rear of a stationary Frankfurt Airport (FRA)-bound Condor aircraft, a Boeing B757-300 (registration D-ABOJ), which was waiting for permission to taxi off. 

Video footage of the incident was uploaded to social media platform X (formerly Twitter), where the left-hand winglet of the Air Europa B737 can be seen stuck underneath the starboard horizontal stabilizer assembly of the Condor B757.

The collision happened at a low speed, and passengers on board the Condor B757 told the Daily Mail that they heard a loud noise as the B737 braked before the impact. 

The Condor B757 aircraft was able to take off at 10:30 local time for FRA airport, 1 hour and 15 minutes late from its original ETD.

The incident did not affect other operations at Palma de Mallorca Airport.
