BOSTON (AP) -- A Southwest Airlines jet backing away from a gate at Boston's Logan International Airport has struck a stationary JetBlue Airways plane. No injuries were reported.

An airport spokesman says the Kansas City-bound Boeing 737 was backing away from the gate just after 7 a.m. Monday when its left wingtip struck the right horizontal stabilizer of the JetBlue A320.

No one was aboard the JetBlue aircraft.

A Southwest spokesman says the 108 passengers aboard the 737 were placed on other flights. The jet was taken out of service.

A picture posted on WFXT-TV's website showed a gouge out of the Southwest jet's wingtip, the vertical part at the end of the wing.

Airport spokesman Matthew Brelis says Logan operations weren't affected.

A Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman says the incident is under investigation.
