March 9 (Bloomberg) -- A JetBlue Airways Corp. plane and an Air India Ltd. aircraft bumped into each other on a taxiway at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, causing some damage to the JetBlue plane’s rudder.

JetBlue Flight 145 had pushed back from the gate and its tow bar was being worked on when the Air India aircraft, en route to its gate, bumped the JetBlue craft, said JetBlue spokesman Alex Headrick. No one was injured in the incident, which occurred at 6:15 a.m. local time.

New York’s WABC-TV reported the Air India plane had some wingtip damage.

The Jet Blue passengers, bound for West Palm Beach, Florida, were boarded onto another aircraft that left at 9:43 a.m., according to JetBlue’s website. A phone call placed to Air India in New York went unanswered.
