A Corendon Airlines Boeing 737-800 was damaged on Friday afternoon at Friedrichshafen Airport. The medium-haul jet collided with a passenger staircase for an as yet unexplained cause.

According to the police, the incident occurred during the last few meters before the parking position. One of the winglets was damaged. There were 106 people on board from Turkey. The return flight was not carried out for safety reasons. Technicians first had to assess the extent of the damage.

Corendon Airlines accommodated the 179 passengers who wanted to fly to Turkey in hotels around Friedrichshafen Airport. On Saturday they were flown to their destination. The cause and amount of damage are still unclear, but are currently being determined.
