Safety investigators are probing a collision between an Asiana Airlines Airbus A330 and a Turkish Airlines Airbus A321 at Istanbul-Atatürk International Airport.

The THY Airbus A321 had arrived from Ercan on Sunday and stopped about 30 metres before the intended parking position at the gate.

At the same time, the Asiana Airbus A330 was taxiing to the runway en route to Seoul. While taxiing past the A321, the right hand wing tip of the A330 hit the vertical stabilizer of the Turkish Airlines jet.

The stabilizer was knocked over entirely and the A330's wing tip sustained serious damage.

The Asiana Airlines flight was cancelled. No one was injured during the collision.
