Evacuation Airport


Australian Melbourne airport evacuated due to the threat of terrorist attack

International Airport Melbourne closed because of a bomb threat.

Despite the fact that about a bomb at the Australian airport received information even the night before, now Melbourne Airport is still not functioning. As a result of this situation, airport departures canceled dozens of flights, and flights on arrival, to the nearest airport.

According to preliminary information the police could not find traces of explosives, however, despite this ongoing quest for a bomb on a very wide area, to completely exclude the possibility of a terrorist act.

It is noted that the original measures for the evacuation of passengers from the aircraft were not undertaken, but then completely cordoned off the airport grounds, and all passengers were evacuated on an emergency basis.
