New York: An aeroplane belonging to Kuwait Airways was bumped by another plane while on the runway ready for takeoff at JFK International Airport early Saturday. 

No injuries among passengers were reported, according to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).

All passengers were transferred to a hotel until further arrangements are taken, KUNA said 

An extreme winter storm is currently hitting the US' east coast, which led to the shutting down of airports and the cancellation of about 3,300 flights, mainly JFK. In a statement late Thursday, JFK officials said all international and local flights were suspended due to severe weather conditions.
