An Oman Air B737-800 was involved in a minor incident at Zanzibar Airport on September 1, when its wing tip came into contact with that of another aircraft, said a statement.
The incident happened while the plane was taxiing to a stop under the guidance of a ground marshaller, it said.
No passengers, crew or other personnel were at risk during the incident, the airline said.
