Two planes collided on the tarmac at Toronto Pearson International Airport on Friday night.
No injuries are reported.
WestJet reported that one of its aircraft, from Cancún, Mexico, with 168 passengers on board and six crew members, was immobilized and waiting to gain access to a door when it was struck by a Sunwing device backing up.
Spokeswoman Lauren Stewart mentioned that WestJet passengers were evacuated by the emergency escape routes.
All passengers were then taken to the airport. They were even able to clear customs shortly after the collision, Stewart said.
Sunwing says its aircraft was being towed at the time of the accident. No passengers or crew members were on board.
Witnesses posted videos on social media in which flames escaping from the tail of the Sunwing aircraft can be seen.

WestJet says it is in communication with the Transportation Safety Board of Canada, the Greater Toronto Airports Authority and other agencies involved in the investigation of this incident.
