Poland-Greece Flight Diverted for Landing: False Bomb Alert

All 190 passengers and crew aboard a Ryanair flight from Poland on Sunday disembarked safely in Athens International Airport with an escort of two Greek warplanes after a bomb alert was reported to authorities.
Greek police spokesperson Constantia Dimoglidou said the Boeing 737 flight from Katowice in Poland was diverted to an isolated area for inspection after the pilot reported the presence of an explosive device onboard.
Firefighters were dispatched to the scene when the plane arrived in Athens at around 5.35 p.m. local time as a precaution. But a search of the plane and passengers’ luggage did not reveal “anything suspicious.”
“The pilot informed the Athens control tower but we don’t know where the information originally came from,” Dimoglidou told AFP….
