EasyJet plane crashes at Amsterdam Airport Schiphzl - ‘Shuddering sound’

An EasyJet spokesman confirmed the two aircraft made contact while being pushed back from the stand.

'Now missing meetings and stuck on plane for 90 minutes'.

"The plane made a shuddering sound and ground to a halt".

Another passenger said on Twitter they were lodged in the KLM plane.

"The flight to London Gatwick will now be operated by another aircraft, currently on its way to Amsterdam", it said.

An EasyJet plane bound for London crashed into another aircraft on the tarmac at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport this morning.

Wolcott reiterated that Washington believes the deal was ineffective, but remains "open to negotiation without preconditions". Shamkhani went on to criticise European countries for their "lack of will" in providing relief from United States sanctions.

The Boeing was due to be flying to Madrid, while the Easyjet plane had been scheduled to fly to London.

LVNL, the Dutch air control authority, said the planes collided during "pushback", the process by which the plane reverses away from the gate before take-off.

The KLM flight to Madrid departed almost three hours late, although it was not clear whether the same plane was used.

One passenger, Jye Sandiford, said: 'Thanks EasyJet.

EasyJet said in a statement that the incident happened during "pushback", adding that passengers had been taken back into the terminal and given further information and meal vouchers. As the two aircraft were damaged, KLM, whose airliner was meant to fly to Madrid, has redirected some of its passengers to another flight.

"The safety of its passengers and crew is easyJet's highest priority and an investigation has been launched in line with procedure to understand what happened".
