Man arrested at Porto airport after shouting ‘bomb’

A man was arrested by PSP police at Porto’s Sá Carneiro Airport yesterday after shouting ‘bomb’ on an inbound Ryanair plane.

The flight from Bergamo, Italy, was coming in to land at Porto and was on final approach when the Italian national shouted that he had planted a bomb onboard.

The aircraft was held in an isolation zone as police carried out a sweep of the aircraft; it was quickly established that the incident was a hoax and the man was arrested.

A spokesman from Ryanair said: “This flight from Milan Bergamo to Porto (11 June) landed normally in Porto. As Portuguese authorities received a hoax security alert, customers remained on board while the police carried out a security search and cleared the aircraft to return to service. This is now a matter for local police.”


Are you kidding, you're going to HOLD ME ONBOARD while you search for a bomb ? Pretty high liability there if a bomb DID go off ! Stupid action.
IF there is a possibility of a bomb on my airplane, I want to get off as fast as I can, let them hold us on the ground away from the airplane.
