Two planes - with 297 and 384 passengers on board - collided while on the ground at Madrid's Barajas airport, but there were no casualties, a media report said.

The incident occurred Saturday between an Air Europe flight - with 297 passengers - bound for Venezuelan capital Caracas, and an aircraft from the Iberworld airline - with 384 passengers - travelling to Mexico's Cancun city, Xinhua reported.

Sources told Xinhua the incident took place when the Air Europe plane was being pushed back from its station, and its tail collided with the wing of the Iberworld aircraft.

The damage to both planes was said to be "light", and all the passengers were able to disembark without injuries.
