A Singapore Airlines (SIA) plane hit an aerobridge at Sydney Airport yesterday while taxiing after landing, and damaged one of its four engines.

One of the aircraft's four engines "made contact" with the aerobridge, said a spokesman for the carrier in a statement to The Straits Times.

"There were no injuries to the 285 passengers and 26 crew" on board Flight SQ 231, he added.

Witnesses posted pictures showing part of an engine rammed into a leg of an aerobridge.
