An Air India plane carrying 179 passengers struck a building at Stockholm's Arlanda airport with its wingtip as it taxied to gate on Wednesday, but no injuries were reported.

According to police, no one was injured and the passengers were able to disembark via a rolling stairway and then walk the short distance to the terminal.
