Ryanair aircraft evacuated following bomb threat at Charleroi airport

Ryanair, the World’s most hated airline, are reported to have evacuated an aircraft on Sunday following a threat to blow it up.

The bomb alert at Charleroi airport south of Brussels turned out to be a false alarm after the plane was evacuated and searched, aviation officials said.

Aviation authority BSCA officials said a search of the plane and passengers found nothing and the plane then took off on its flight to Fez, Morocco.

The Belgian news agency cited airport security officials as saying the alert was received at 8am (0700 GMT), prompting the plane to be evacuated.

A search of the plane and passengers was carried out and completed shortly after 10am.
