Oman Air aircraft delayed in Zanzibar due to ‘minor accident’

Oman Air has said one of its aircraft has been into a minor accident at the Zanzibar International Airport on Sunday, delaying the onward flight to about four hours, Gulf News has reported. A human error caused by a ground staff marshalling the aircrafts in the parking bay caused the accident, but there was no damage to the Muscat-based carrier's aircraft, said Oman Air's head of corporate communications and media, Osama Bin Karim al Haremi. "There was a very minor accident on the Zanzibar Airport runway but after routine checks the same aircraft (Boeing 737-800) carried on to Dar-Es-Salaam and finally to Muscat without any problems," al Haremi told the daily.
