Franco-Swiss international airport evacuated due to bomb threat

The international French-Swiss airport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg was evacuated due to an explosion threat, AviationSource news reports.

This is the third bomb threat at the airport in the past eight days. Several French airports had to be evacuated twice last week due to anonymous emails.

According to information circulated by French news sources this week, French Transport Minister Clement Beaune stressed that “almost all the threats were sent from the same email address located in Switzerland.”

EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg (BSL) is an international airport controlled by two countries: Switzerland and France. It is located on French territory, near the city of Saint-Louis in southern Alsace, close to the Swiss border. This airport is a key air hub for three countries: Switzerland, France and Germany.

The airport’s official Facebook page reports that flights have resumed.

“The airport has reopened and flights are gradually resuming. Passengers are encouraged to contact their airline for information regarding their flight. We wish you a safe and happy journey,” the airport wrote.

An investigation is currently pending.
