On 6th February, a Vueling Airbus A320 was damaged after its left wing leading edge smashed into a boarding bridge at Ibiza Airport, Spain.

The Airbus A320-232 with registration EC-MEA was scheduled to perform flight VY3511 from Ibiza to Barcelona. However, while it was taxiing, its left wing leading edge near the sharklet impacted with the Aerobridge.

As a result, the left-hand winglet was damaged and the aircraft subsequently taxied back to the gate. No one was injured in the incident and the aircraft has been grounded since then.

Recently, a Lion Air Boeing 737-900’s right winglet smashed into a terminal building while it was leaving its parking stand at Merauke-Mopah Airport, Indonesia.
