A trolley of the US-Bangla Airlines has hit a Boeing-737 aircraft of Biman Bangladesh Airlines at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport (HSIA), according to Biman sources.
The civil aviation authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) and Biman have launched a joint investigation over the matter.
"The incident took place on Sunday night and we reported it to the Boeing company to repair the aircraft as soon as possible. However, the disruption was not too high as per current assumption and our flight schedule has not been hampered yet by the incident," Abu Saleh Mostafa Kamal, managing director and CEO of Biman, told TBS on Monday.
"We are investigating the matter and so is the civil aviation authority of Bangladesh (CAAB). The US-Bangla Airlines will bear the cost of the repair," he added.
He mentioned that another incident occurred between two microbuses of US-Bangla and Biman on the same night with no major damage.
Meanwhile, US-Bangla general manager (PR) Kamrul Islam said that he was not aware of the matter.
According to sources, the trolley hit a grounded Boeing-737 at the airport hangar while moving through the bay.
The aircraft returned to Dhaka from Sylhet on Saturday and was grounded at Bay 12AN of the airport.
This is the fourth such incident to have occurred since mid-February this year, leading to several aircraft being grounded.
