False alarm of threat at Brussels Airport

Last night, the news agency RTL announced that an aircraft of the airline Air Transat was threatened with an attack at Brussels Airport. The aircraft was to fly from Brussels to Montreal. It was a false alarm.

The RTL INFO editorial team spoke to Anke Fransen, spokeswoman for Brussels Airport, who confirmed that a warning of an attack had indeed been received by e-mail. She also indicated that the federal police had carried out a “thorough” control of the aircraft, but that the warning had indeed been a false alarm.



RTL INFO has also noted that the flight was postponed, and only took off this Thursday morning.
