Copenhagen. On Monday evening, the police emptied a plane that had landed at Copenhagen Airport of passengers after a bomb threat.

Espen Godiksen, chief of duty at the Copenhagen Police, announced this shortly after midnight on Tuesday night.

The plane, which came from Poland, is located isolated from normal operations and is being investigated further, he says further.

– We have received a bomb threat against a plane. We received it at 21.47, says Espen Godiksen.

– The plane landed at Copenhagen Airport shortly after. It was emptied of passengers, all of whom were fine. They are now handled in a specially designed place at the airport.

The police are still present and will be for “some time”, he states.

The warden does not want to go into the details of the threat.

– What I can say is that we have the investigation on, and they are in full swing to find out where the threat is coming from, says Espen Godiksen.

He says there is no danger in the situation and that “everything is under control”.

No arrests have been made.

The warden does not want to comment on the seriousness of the threat.

– I have no comments on that, other than that we assess such things from time to time, and then we act based on the information we have, says Espen Godiksen.

Copenhagen Airport’s press department has informed TV 2 that the plane came from Poland’s capital, Warsaw.

The remaining flight operations have resumed without problems, writes the media.

It was around 11 p.m. that the Copenhagen Police confirmed on Twitter that a plane had escaped.

– We are present at Copenhagen Airport in connection with a threat to a plane. The plane has been emptied of passengers, and we have so far found nothing suspicious, the police wrote.
