Two anonymous calls threatened Delta flights at New York’s John F Kennedy (JFK) Airport on Monday night. Authorities say a passenger jet at was given the all clear following the bomb threat.
Port Authority spokesman Joe Pentangelo says Delta Air Lines Flight 468 from San Francisco to New York with 171 passengers landed at JFK Airport just after 7:40 pm yesterday.
Pentangelo says the Boeing 757 was evacuated and taken to a remote part of the runway where it was swept and found to have no explosives.
Local media said two anonymous calls came into Delta headquarters threatening separate flights with the same number – Delta 468.
Delta spokeswoman Lindsay McDuff said another airline received the threat regarding Flight 468 and that proper security procedures were followed.
She said Delta also currently operates a JFK to Tel Aviv flight under the same flight number and was in the process of boarding last night. Pentangelo says that plane also was searched and cleared.
