Airliners collide at Toronto’s Pearson Airport, passengers safe


TORONTO, Jan 5 (Reuters) – Dozens of passengers were evacuated at Toronto’s Pearson Airport on Friday, after a plane pushing back from a gate struck an arriving jet, causing a fire, WestJet Airlines said in a statement.

The collision between the two planes from Sunwing Airlines and Westjet Airlines resulted in a fire, which firefighters put out, Canadian broadcaster CP24 reported, citing a witness. All passengers were safe, the witness reported.

Pearson Airport said on Twitter that fire and emergency crews had responded to an “incident involving two aircraft” at its Terminal 3, and that passengers had been evacuated. (Reporting by Julie Gordon in Vancouver and Jim Finkle in Toronto; Editing by Sandra Maler)
