COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A bomb threat led to passengers being evacuated from a plane that landed in Columbus after a flight from Texas on Monday, an airport spokeswoman said.

Angie Tabor with the Columbus Regional Airport Authority said the threat was made before American Airlines Flight 302 landed at Port Columbus International Airport at about noon EST on a regularly scheduled flight from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

Ms. Tabor said 133 passengers and five crew members were being evacuated from the plane, a Boeing MD-80, which has been parked away from the terminal according to airport procedures.

Ms. Tabor said other flights are proceeding normally.

Airport police, the Transportation Security Administration, the FBI and the Columbus bomb squad are investigating, she said.
