New Delhi: Passengers on-board an IndiGo coach at the airport here sustained minor injuries after a window shattered due to a jet blast allegedly from a SpiceJet plane approaching a parking bay.

However, SpiceJet said it was too early to say if the incident last evening was caused by jet blast from its

aircraft or any other reason. The police has registered an FIR and would look at who was at fault, a Delhi Police official said.

An IndiGo spokesperson said the right front window of its bus was broken from the impact of the blast. Five passengers who received minor injuries were taken to the airport clinic. The matter is being probed by aviation watchdog Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

"IndiGo Coach number 34 was parked at Bay 17 today at 16:50 hours for boarding of passengers on flight 6E-191 enroute Delhi-Mumbai. At the same time, an arriving aircraft of Spicejet SG-253 took a to park at the allocated bay. The jet blast from the aircraft broke the right front window glass of the coach," IndiGo said in a statement.

SpiceJet in a statement said that its flight SG 253, Chandigarh-Delhi, was following ATC instructions and taxiing after landing at Delhi. “It is too early to say if the incident was caused by an outside object or jet blast of SpiceJet aircraft or the bus violated the vehicular movement lane or any other reason.”

“It is also too early to apportion responsibility as the pilots were following normal procedures as is done worldwide. In any case, we have informed the regulator and the airline is closely cooperating with all assistance. There was no damage to the window panes of any aircraft,” read the statement.
