Several flights headed for Durban International Airport were diverted on Friday because of a bomb scare, the Airports Company South Africa said.
Spokesperson Colin Naidoo said the police and bomb squad were alerted after an anonymous caller claimed there was a bomb at the airport.
“Police and bomb squad members did a thorough sweep of the airport and the aircraft ... nothing was found,” he said.
Naidoo said some flights were diverted and others delayed.
“The airport is operational because it was just a scare ...
but we take these kind of phone calls very seriously.”—Sapa
