China Southern and Kuwait Airways have collided at New York City's John F Kennedy International Airport amid delays caused by a winter storm.

The Port Authority Police Benevolent Association, in a tweet, said that the right wing of the Chinese aircraft grazed the tail end of the Kuwait Airways vessel, causing damages to both the planes.

No passenger was on board the China Southern plane at the time of the collision, reported the local media.

It added that Kuwait's passengers had safely disembarked and were shifted to nearby hotels.

Several passengers were stranded for hours at New York's JFK Airport reportedly as an effect of the 'bomb cyclone' leading to halting of airplanes at the runways, earlier in the day on Saturday.

Passengers aboard Air China, who were stranded for hours at the airport tarmac, deplaned after getting a small respite from the travel chaos.

Massive delays, walls of people in terminals, complaints of hours-long waits to get to a gate after landing, then hours more to get checked baggage were some of the cries of the stranded passengers, who took to the social media, to vent out their anger.
