A plane taxiing at Beijing Capital International Airport bumped into a stationary plane at 9 a.m. on Saturday. No one was injured in the accident.

The wing tip of the taxiing Singapore Airlines Boeing 777 scraped a wing on the tail of an Air China Boeing 737—800 waiting on the taxiway, an Air China official said.

Pilot error was the likely cause of the accident and the investigation into the accident is ongoing, an official from the Civil Aviation Administration of China said.

Visibility at the airport was reduced at the time because of fog.

Air China arranged for another plane to fly the passengers on Flight CA901 to Ulan Bator while the scraped plane was grounded for checks and repairs, the official said.

Operations at the airport were not affected by the accident, an official from Beijing Capital International Airport said.
