Bomb Threat at Warsaw’s Modlin Airport

WARSAW (Reuters) -

The airport in Modlin, on the outskirts of Poland’s capital of Warsaw, was evacuated on Wednesday after receiving a bomb threat over the phone.

According to a local fire brigade official, firefighter Mariusz Kwasniewski, airport personnel found suspicious luggage inside the terminal, a long distance from the runway.

Opened in 2012, as Warsaw’s second passenger airport, Modlin transports between 4,000 and 7,000 passengers daily, via low-cost airline Ryanair flights to London Stansted, Paris Beauvais, and Brussels Charleroi, among other airports.
