The incident happened at around 7:30 p.m.
It involved United ExpressJet Flight 4226 headed for Nashville and Scandinavian Airlines Flight 908 headed to Oslo, Norway.
The planes were taxiing for departure when the left wing of the Scandinavian Air plane clipped the tail of the United ExpressJet.
Both planes went back to their gates. The passengers on the United flight were put on another plane and are en route for Nashville.
Scandinavian Air is making accommodations for their passengers.
