A DHC-8-400 (G-JEDR) had stopped short of the runway, at intersection Holding Position JA1, prior to taking off. A following PIA Boeing 777 (AP-BGY) was cleared to Holding Position J1, at the beginning of the runway, which involved taxiing beyond JA1. The crew of the B777 were cautioned about the presence of the DHC-8 as they continued towards J1. As the B777 passed behind the DHC-8, its right wingtip struck the DHC‑8's rudder. The B777 suffered minor scratching to its wingtip. The DHC-8's rudder was damaged and required replacement.
