Some passengers who planned to leave Charlottetown Airport Monday morning found themselves stuck on the ground.
Air Canada Jazz flight #7676 from Charlottetown to Halifax was cancelled after ground equipment struck the aircraft and caused damage to the plane.
An ambulance was called to the incident to attend to an employee working on the ramp as a precautionary measure.
The aircraft was ferried to Air Canada Jazz’s maintenance base in Halifax Monday evening for further maintenance inspection.
“Safety is our top priority at Jazz,” said a spokesperson.
The 74 passengers onboard were given reservations on the next available flights via Halifax and Toronto. Air Canada Jazz also added an additional flight from Charlottetown to Halifax Tuesday morning.
