SAN ANTONIO- Investigators are looking into the third bomb threat involving the San Antonio International Airport in about six weeks. A TSA spokesperson says a bomb threat was received about a Southwest Airlines flight from Baltimore heading to San Antonio. Airport spokesperson Rich Johnson said the call was made to the TSA main dispatch center.
The plane landed safely after 6 p.m. Monday and was taken to a remote area of the property. Passengers were evacuated and police and K-9s searched the entire plane and every single bag. About an hour and a half later, once nothing was found, passengers were let back on to the plane and it continued on to Dallas.
Officials did not release any information about who made the call. Lt. Col. Mark Probus, a passenger on the flight, said police informed passengers that the call was made from Baltimore. He said everyone was calm and orderly throughout the ordeal and no one panicked.
