Security Alert At Seattle Airport, 2 Planes Evacuated And Another Diverted



U.S.A –


Two planes were evacuated upon arrival at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on Sunday due to “security concern.”

The two flights evacuated late Sunday afternoon were the JetBlue flight from Long Beach, California, and a regional SkyWest jet from Phoenix, according to airport spokesman, Perry Cooper.

A Delta Air Lines flight from Los Angeles to Orlando was also diverted to Dallas Sunday afternoon for the same reason.

According to Cooper, passengers were bused to their gates from the airport’s third runway as a precaution.

The airport official said the matter is being investigated.

The flight disruptions came a day after bomb threats targeted two jets bound for Atlanta, prompting F-16 fighter jets to escort the planes.
