Hawaiian Airlines A321neo damaged by jet bridge collapse at San Francisco airport

0 Comments


On May 2, 2024, a Hawaiian Airlines Airbus A321neo was damaged after a jet bridge collapse at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) in California.

The Airbus A321neo registration N216HA has just arrived as flight HA42 from Kahului, Maui. Reports indicate that the jet bridge malfunctioned and collapsed after the Airbus A321neo docked at Gate A1.

The collapse resulted in damage to the aircraft’s L1 door, the main passenger door on the left front fuselage.

Fortunately, there were no injuries among passengers, crew or ground staff. However, the incident led to the cancellation of the flight and the grounding of the aircraft for repairs at SFO.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is likely investigating the cause of the jet bridge collapse. This includes inspecting the bridge structure and maintenance records to determine what led to the failure.

Depending on the severity of the damage, the aircraft may be out of service for several days or even weeks.
