MUSCAT: Oman Air has denied media reports that one of its flight was diverted to Kuwait after bomb threat.
Kuwaiti media reported earlier that the Omani national carrier flight was diverted due to bomb threat.
“Oman Air denies the news circulated by a Kuwaiti local newspaper that an Omani aircraft diverted to Kuwait due to bomb threat,” the airline tweeted on Sunday.
A Kuwaiti local newspaper reported that an Omani aircraft departed the Sultanate en route to Germany but had to request an emergency landing in Kuwait where security forces inspected the aircraft.
“This is false news. It is not true. If there was any sort of danger on any of our flights our emergency response team would pick it up,” an Oman Air spokesman was quoting as saying by Times of Oman.
