The flight was due to depart at 9:50pm San Francisco time, but did not do so after the incident occurred.

An SIA spokesperson, in response to media queries by CNA, said that the Airbus 350-900 which SIA uses to operate the flight, was taxiing for departure when its wing hit another plane which was parked on ground.

It returned back safely to the gate after the incident for inspections and no one on board, passengers or crew, were injured.

The flight was eventually cancelled and engineers proceeded to do their checks on the aircraft.
