Evacuation at Chopin Airport. All because of “false alarm”


“The services at Chopin Airport in Warsaw have received information that one of the planes may have an explosive charge. More than 100 passengers have been evacuated,” said the Polish Press Agency spokeswoman for the Commander of the Vistula Border Guard Unit, Dagmara Bielec-Janas. The services searched the machine, but found nothing. “It was a false alarm,” said Piotr Rudzki, spokesman for Warsaw Chopin Airport late in the evening.

On Sunday evening at Chopin Airport, the services received information that one of the planes may have an explosive device on board. The machine flew to Warsaw from Istanbul.

It belongs to the Turkish Airlines Turkish Airlines – said Dagmara Bielec-Janas, the press spokeswoman of the Commander of the Vistula Border Guard Unit.

Polsatnews.pl writes that plane around 18 landed at the Chopin Airport in Warsaw. The service machine was to be directed to the side of the apron.

Over 100 people – passengers and crew – were evacuated from the plane.

Later, pyrotechnics entered the action and checked the machine for safety.

Routine procedures have therefore been initiated – the press spokeswoman of the Commander of the Vistula Border Guard Unit Dagmara Bielec-Janas said, adding that her information shows that no dangerous item, cargo or anything like that was found at that time.

Everything points to the fact that it was an anonymous joke – she informed. A dog was also allowed into the plane, which checked the machine for explosive and dangerous substances.

The action at the airport ended after a few hours.

No bomb was found – informed late in the evening Piotr Rudzki, press spokesman for Chopin Airport in Warsaw.

Fortunately, it was a false alarm, albeit it is terribly unpleasant that in such a coviod situation, when ambulances that could be useful to patients are busy – emphasized the airport spokesman, referring to the fact that due to this “joke” it was necessary to send ambulances to Okecie, because this is the procedure.
