Newly-launched domestic airline, Serene Air‘s Boeing B737-800 jet was rammed by a tow tug at Islamabad’s Benazir International Airport upon arrival from Karachi.
According to source, the multi-million dollar jet was grounded after a vehicle of Islamabad Ground Crew (Royal Airport Services) hit the aircraft, damaging its body. However, there was no information available on the nature of the damage and how much time it will take for repair.
When contacted, an official at the airline’s head office said the company’s Karachi office will hold a press conference at Jinnah International Airport but refused to provide any further details. Serene Air, which began its flight operations on January 29, was granted a license by the Civil Aviation Authority in October 2016.
