Ryanair jets collide at Seville airport

Ryanair, the World’s most hated airline, have reportedly been involved in a collision between two of their aircraft at Seville airport.

According to the report on the ABC de Sevilla website, both aircraft were pushed back from their stands at the same time resulting in the wing from one aircraft striking the tail of the other causing minor damage (see image) and a resulting delay to the passengers on both aircraft.

In other news, Ryanair are cutting services at Edinburgh airport axing flights to destinations including Fuerteventura, Spain, and Frankfurt from October, adding to the five routes that the wannabe airline said in February it would remove from its summer schedule.

The cuts will reduce the number of its passengers using Edinburgh by about 500,000 a year — from 1.8m to 1.3m, and cost 500 jobs, according to Ryanair.

  1. As a worker at this airport I noticed an error in your article. Both aircraft were not pushing back at the same time. Both the stands are ‘self manoeuvring’ meaning the aircraft move off the stand under their own power. One aircraft was moving off stand and the other stationary.

    1. Hi David,

      Thanks for your clarification. In your opinion, does this mean the blame lies with the pilot rather than the driver of the pushback tractor?
