    According to a passenger on the EasyJet flight, which was meant to fly to London, travellers have faced a delay of around five hours as a result of the incident.

    An EasyJet A320 collided on Tuesday with a KLM Boeing 737-800 at Amsterdam Airport, with the EasyJet aircraft's wing becoming stuck in the second plane, the Mirror has reported.

    A passenger on board the A320 described the incident as the plane "making a shuddering sound" before coming to a halt.

    ​Following the incident, passengers on both planes were evacuated to the terminal. As the two aircraft were damaged, KLM, whose airliner was meant to fly to Madrid, has redirected some of its passengers to another flight.

    The incident is reportedly being investigated by the Dutch Safety Board.
