An Air India passenger jet clipped a parked airplane at New York's John F Kennedy Airport on Saturday but no one was hurt, news reports said.

WABC News reported that the Air India plane had landed a short time before the incident, and was taxiing toward the gate when it bumped the parked JetBlue plane. WABC said both aircraft sustained minor damage.

A spokesperson for the Port Authority, which runs New York's airports, told WABC that no passengers were injured on either aircraft.

Authorities are investigating the mishap, WABC said.

At the time of the accident, the JetBlue flight was parked at the gate, preparing for departure.

All 150 passengers aboard the JetBlue flight, which was bound for West Palm Beach, Florida, disembarked and were transferred to another plane.
