Published on : Tuesday, March 26, 2019

On Tuesday, a Singapore Airlines (SIA) flight from Mumbai landed safely at Changi Airport here after the pilot raised a bomb alert.

 

Flight 423 was escorted safely back to the airport by Singapore’s air force and touched down at about 8 am, the police was quoted as saying by the media.

 

 

The police searched the Boeing 777-300ER that carried 263 people onboard, but did not find any suspicious item.

 

All passengers, except for a woman and a child who were held back for questioning, disembarked safely and had to undergo security screening before they could leave.

 

Preliminary investigation showed that the airline had received a call after the plane left the Mumbai airport on Monday at 11.35 pm. The caller claimed that there was a bomb on the plane.

 

An airline spokesman said: “Singapore Airlines confirms there was a bomb threat concerning SQ423 operating from Mumbai to Singapore. We are assisting the authorities with their investigations and regret that we are unable to provide further details.”
