Ryanair: Bomb threat on a flight connecting Poland with Greece

A Ryanair plane connecting Poland with Athens was escorted by two Greek warplanes on Sunday January 22 after a bomb threat was reported on the flight. After landing, the plane was inspected by minesweepers.

This Sunday, January 22, a Ryanair Boeing 738 connecting Katowice (Poland) with Athens (Greece) was escorted by two Greek warplanes because of a bomb threat on the flight.

With more than 190 people on board, the plane landed at Athens Elefthérios-Venizélos International Airport at around 17:40 local time (16:40 French time).

The two fighter-bombers intercepted the airliner as it entered Greek airspace over North Macedonia, a source told AFP. He had previously been escorted by Hungarian Air Force jets on sight.

After landing, the plane was inspected by minesweepers, according to the Greek news agency Athens News Agency (ANA). Although the origin of the alert has not yet been determined, the plane was received at a remote location at the airport.
