Passenger’s Hotspot Name Causes Plane Departing From Nairobi to Make Emergency Landing
A Turkish Airlines flight from Nairobi to Istanbul was forced to make an unplanned stop in Sudan after one of the 100 passengers on the aircraft named his bluetooth hotspot “bomb on board”.
After landing in Sudan, security checked all of the passengers and the aircraft and it was deemed safe to board again.
A statement from Turkish Airlines said: “Experts said the Wi-Fi network in question was created on board. No irregularities were seen after security procedures were carried out, and passengers were brought back on the plane once boarding restarted.”
