On September 19, 2023, two Boeing airplanes collided on the ground at Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI).
There were no reported injuries despite the two aircraft suffering structural damage when the incident happened at around 9:00 local time.
A Boeing B737-800 from Air Europa was arriving at the terminal when it collided with the rear of a Boeing B757-300 from Condor, which was waiting to taxi off to Frankfurt Airport (FRA) and had been departing from Barcelona Airport (BCN).
