DELTA FLIGHT EVACUATED AT JFK | affordable Uganda trip

Delta flight set to take off from JFK to Tel Aviv has been evacuated at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York after a bomb threat was called in on Monday evening.

Passengers on board Delta Flight 468 were escorted off the aircraft away from terminals and moved onto heated buses, passenger Richie Greenwood wrote on Twitter. He said they were made aware of the incident as the plane landed, but there was apparently no unusual activity on board. The flight, which arrived in New York from San Francisco at 8:14 p.m. ET, was then surrounded by emergency vehicles on the tarmac.

No injuries were reported. Representatives for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey did not immediately return requests for comment.

The Delta flight departed San Francisco Monday at 11:45 a.m. A flight with the same number was scheduled to leave JFK Airport for Tel Aviv, Israel, at 9:23 p.m. ET, but that flight was using a different plane.
