At least five Jet Airways flights from New Delhi received bomb threats hours after Brussels witnessed multiple terrorist attacks on Tuesday, The Hindu reported.
Of five flights, three flights landed safe and sound at their destinations. However, one flight was diverted and another was taken to the isolation bay, Delhi airport officials said.
“Jet Airways got a bomb threat call for five of its flights originating from Delhi. While the flights to Dehradun, Chandigarh and Gorakhpur have landed safely at its destination, Delhi-Chennai (flight number 9W829) has been diverted to Nagpur and another Delhi-Chennai flight (9W832) has been taken to the isolation bay,” the official added.
“All the five flights are on ground and are being checked by security agencies at the respective airports. We regret the inconvenience caused to our guests. The safety and security of our guests and crew are always our main priority,” Jet Airways said in a statement.
A series of apparently coordinated explosions ripped through Brussels airport and a metro train on Tuesday, killing at least 35 people in the latest attacks to target Europe.
