Two aircrafts collide at JFK airport in NYC, no casualties

Two aircrafts collide at JFK airport in NYC, no casualties

A Singapore Airlines Airbus A380, the world's largest passenger plane, was forced to land at a small NY airport Thursday after the "bomb cyclone" storm system forced the closure of runways at John F. Kennedy International.

"There's like two planes full of people at each gate", passenger Julia Knitel said of the conditions in the airport.

Port Authority officials said no injuries were reported and that all passengers were able to safely disembark, NBC reported.

NBC New York reports that the passengers aboard the Kuwait Airways flight had been taken to hotels while they waited to be rebooked on alternative flights.

An extreme winter storm is now hitting the US' east coast, which led to the shutting down of airports and the cancellation of about 3,300 flights, mainly JFK.

There were many frustrated passengers Saturday as JFK Airport struggled to get back up to speed following the weather-related delays over the past couple of days. "Is anyone there?", tweeted one passenger who had landed on a flight from Paris at 8 p.m.

The Port Authority attributed the delays to a backlog of flights, hundreds of which were cancelled ahead of the storm. The authority was providing portable staircases and buses to deplane passengers and bring them into the terminal.

According to air travel tracking service Flightradar 24, dozens of planes had the same issues after landing.

"After landing 3.5 hours ago, #DY7019 awaits a gate".

Departing flights weren't much better off: social media users were also reporting takeoff delays as well.

American Airlines says a jet taking off from New York City's Kennedy Airport had to turn around and land because of a "possible mechanical issue".
