Spanish airliner evacuated on landing in La Coruna after threat received

MADRID (Reuters) -A Spanish passenger plane belonging to the domestic airline Volotea was evacuated on Friday morning on landing in the northwestern city of La Coruna after authorities received a bomb threat, a spokesperson for the local police said.

All passengers were evacuated after the plane landed around 7:30 a.m. (0630 GMT), and the plane, which had taken off from Bilbao in northeastern Spain, was parked away from the airport buildings and being inspected, a spokesperson for the airport operator Aena said.

Two hours after the landing, police said nothing suspicious had yet been found.

La Coruna’s airport continued to operate normally.
