07 January 2018, 08:43 | Austin Hogan

A spokesman for the Transportation Safety Board, Canada's transportation regulator, said a team was headed to the airport to investigate.

Pearson Airport said on Twitter that fire and emergency crews had responded to an "incident involving two aircraft" at its Terminal 3, and that passengers had been evacuated.

Passengers aboard a WestJet flight inbound from Cancun, Mexico, were evacuated from the aircraft via emergency slides and nobody on board was injured.

The WestJet flight was carrying 168 passengers and a crew of six at the time of the collision.

Video footage shows flames coming from one of the planes as passengers are heard screaming.

But passengers have offered accounts of confusion aboard the plane and allegations that procedures were not clearly communicated.

"I'm sure they did their best, but. they kept saying "be seated, remain seated" as the fire was going on outside", he said.
