Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - KUWAIT — Kuwait's Jazeera Airways on Thursday dismissed a potential security threat to one of its flights, saying that it contacted with Kuwaiti authorities to check planes as a further precaution.

"Earlier Thursday Jazeera Airways received a communication indicating a potential security situation. This communication was evaluated and deemed to be not credible," the airline said in a statement.

However, with an abundance of caution, Jazeera has engaged with the authorities in Kuwait and around its network to safeguard the protection of passengers and crew, and all flights have been provided with additional screening measures as a precaution, it added.

Jazeera Airways said its security team was closely monitoring the situation, while apologizing for any delays that passengers might have experiences during this time.

A bomb threat that caused a Jazeera Airways passenger flight to make an emergency landing at Turkey’s Trabzon Airport on Thursday turned out to be a false alarm, the private Kuwaiti airline confirmed to Al Arabiya.

Shortly after the incident, Jazeera Airways announced on Twitter that all its operations returned to normal.

All passengers onboard were safely evacuated from the aircraft, Trabzon Governor Ismail Ustaoglu told online news media TRT World, adding that the plane was searched in the safe zone.

The bomb threat issued to Kuwait authorities was not just for that specific flight but for all Kuwaiti planes that were in operation at the time, according to TRT World. — Agencies
