The IndiGo call centre received a bomb threat for its Jaipur-Mumbai flight early morning on Tuesday. The call was received around 5:30 in the morning from an unidentified person.
“The IndiGo call centre received a call at around 5:30 am this morning from an unidentified person mentioning a bomb threat to 6E 218 operating a Jaipur – Mumbai flight. We immediately reported the matter to Bomb Threat Assessment Committee (BTAC) and followed all security protocols,” IndiGo airlines said in a statement.
“The concerned authorities carried out the investigation and declared the call as a specific bomb threat. Following clearance, operations will be resumed as normal,” the statement further added. On a related note, in March this year a Delhi-Kolkata Air India flight, AI-020, returned to the Delhi airport after a bomb threat call was received by the national carrier’s call centre.
Further details are awaited.
