Flight from Russia to India receives bomb threat

Flight from Russia to India receives bomb threat

New Delhi, Jan 21 (Prensa Latina) A plane from Russia to the Indian tourist city of Goa received a bomb threat and was diverted to Uzbekistan, airport sources revealed.

The Azur Air charter flight from Russia’s Perm International Airport was carrying 238 passengers, including two infants, and seven crew members and was scheduled to land at Dabolim airfield in South Goa early this morning.

The aircraft was diverted from its destination before entering Indian airspace after the director of the Dabolim air terminal received an email mentioning the planting of a bomb.

Hours later, the Russian embassy released a statement declaring that the flight from Perm to Goa made an emergency landing in Uzbekistan due to a bomb threat and will resume its journey as no dangerous substances were found on board.

Earlier this month, another charter flight of the same airline was sent to Jamnagar in Gujarat after an explosives warning was received.

The Azur Air flight from Moscow to Goa with 236 passengers and eight crew members made an emergency landing at Jamnagar airbase, Indian state of Gujarat, and was cleared for takeoff the following day after it was determined that the call was a hoax.
