An Airbus A330-243 owned by Middle East Airlines with registration number OD-MEA, reportedly ran into a Boeing 777 airplane with registration number TC-LJC operated by Turkish Airlines.

Sources at the airport said the Turkish cargo flight was parked at the international airport apron when the Middle East airbus ran into it.

The MEA airbus, which had been boarding passengers since 12:00pm, had to disembark every passenger on board.

There had been numerous ground collision incidents at the Lagos Airport over the years due to limited space at the airside of the airport, as more activities and higher movement of aircraft traffic have surpassed the initial plan of the airport.
