GoAir Flight Makes Emergency Landing in Kolkata After Bomb Threat

GoAir flight G8 127 had to make an emergency landing at the Kolkata Airport after a "bomb threat letter" was received.

Later, it emerged that threat was a hoax, PTI reported.

Official sources said flight G8-127 landed at the Kolkata airport around 9:30 pm after the pilot informed the ground authorities about a bomb threat.

The plane was taken to an isolated bay at the airport after which regular security procedures were followed, they said.

A bomb threat assessment committee later declared the threat as hoax, officials said. More details are awaited, they said.
