Emergency declared at Mumbai airport after Vistara Paris-Mumbai flight gets Bomb threat

New Delhi: A bomb threat was received on a Vistara flight carrying 306 people from Paris, the capital of France, to Mumbai. Immediately after this threat, before the arrival of the plane, emergency was declared at Mumbai Airport.

A spokesperson for Vistara Airlines released a statement confirming the incident: “We confirm that a security concern has been noted by our staff while onboard Vistara flight UK 024 operating from Paris to Mumbai on 2 June 2024.”

“Following the protocol, we immediately informed the relevant authorities. The flight has landed at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport, Mumbai and we are fully cooperating with the security agencies for all the mandatory checks,” the spokesperson added.

The bomb threat on the Vistara flight was made just a day after an IndiGo flight from Varanasi to New Delhi received a similar threat, which police, after a thorough checking, determined was a hoax.
