Singapore newspaper The Strait Times, quoting a Scoot spokesman, reported a Scoot aircraft’s left wing was damaged after it came into contact with an Emirates plane while taxiing to the airport’s runway.

An Emirates spokesman confirmed to Reuters one of its aircraft bound for Dubai was slightly damaged as it pushed backed from the terminal, without elaborating.
