NEW YORK // An Air India passenger jet clipped a parked airplane at New York's John F Kennedy Airport today but no one was hurt, news reports said.

WABC News reported that the Air India plane had landed a short time before the incident, and was taxiing towards the gate when it bumped the parked Jet Blue plane. WABC said both aircraft sustained minor damage.

A spokesperson for the Port Authority, which runs New York's airports, told WABC that no passengers were injured on either aircraft.
