Flight attendant arrested over series of bomb threats

Thursday, Jul 21, 2022 0

A Turkish Airlines’ flight attendant has been arrested following a series of bomb threats on the carrier’s flights.

The employee was detained and is accused of writing at least one of the bomb threat notes found on board.

Police said they are investigating whether the employee was responsible for any of the other recent threats.

Since March, four Turkish Airlines’ flights have been diverted or delayed due to bomb scares, all of which turned out to be hoaxes.

The employee has not yet been named but the airline confirmed he or she had been fired.
