An investigation has been launched following a low-speed incident on the tarmac at Perth Airport.

Qantas has confirmed it’s looking into how two Boeing 737 aircraft came into contact last night.

The wingtips made contact with each other as one of the aircraft was parking at a gate.

Qantas said those onboard would have “felt a jolt when the wingtips made contact”.

“After assessing the situation, the captain advised customers to continue to disembark as usual,” the airline spokesperson said.

“Engineers are inspecting both aircraft and an investigation is underway.”
