Delta flight lands in Dublin over bomb scare

- Associated Press - Monday, April 16, 2012

DUBLIN (AP) — Dublin Airport authorities on Monday said a Delta Air Lines flight made an emergency landing after a bomb threat on board.

Irish police said nothing suspicious had been found following a search of the Boeing 767, and none of the 206 passengers and crew on board was reported injured.

Monday's flight was bound from Istanbul to New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport.

The Dublin Airport Authority and the Irish Aviation Authority said the pilot requested an emergency landing because of a suspicious object found on board. The aircraft later was cleared for refueling and resumed its flight to New York.

Authorities said no other flights at Dublin Airport were affected by the security alert.
