An Air New Zealand Boeing jet parked at Los Angeles airport has been hit by a Continental Airlines aircraft.

An Air New Zealand spokesperson says the Continental plane was being moved out of a hangar when it hit the Air New Zealand plane, damaging an edge slat.

He says the slat will have to be replaced.

No passengers were aboard the plane at the time.
