Flight from Denver to Cleveland bumps jetway

CLEVELAND - A Frontier flight traveling from Denver to Cleveland struggled once on the ground at Hopkins Airport overnight.

Our affiliate in Cleveland reports sources say the pilot of the aircraft may have bumped a jetway after landing, causing delays for passengers on board. A jetway is an enclosed gate from the airplane to the terminal.

Frontier Airlines flight number 526 was scheduled to arrive in Cleveland at 12:41 a.m. local time, but according to their flight status, did not arrive at the gate until 2 a.m.

A spokesperson for Hopkins Airport confirmed the plane hit a jetway while approaching the terminal. No injuries were reported. The plane sustained minor damage.

Frontier Airlines Flight 527, from Cleveland to Denver, has been cancelled. The flight was scheduled to depart at 7 a.m. ET Thursday and land in Denver at 9:05 a.m. MST. It is not know if the plane that was scheduled to fly from Cleveland to Denver on Thursday was the plane involved in Wednesday night's incident.

The jetway was also damaged, but the extent is unclear. The airport official was not sure how long it took passengers to get off the plane. Frontier Airlines has yet to comment.
