A Boeing 707 operated by a Polish charter airline on Friday made an emergency landing in Prague after a bomb threat, Czech air traffic controllers said.
Czech public television said police had detained a man who had threatened to detonate a bomb.
It was not immediately clear whether the man actually had a bomb.
“An Enter Air plane flying from Las Palmas, Spain to Warsaw landed in Prague… because of the threat of an illegal act,” Richard Klima, spokesman for Prague’s air traffic controllers, told AFP.
“The plane landed based on the pilot’s request,” he added.
The DNES broadsheet said on its website the plane was carrying about 160 passengers, mostly from Poland.
The detained man was also Polish, said DNES.
The daily also quoted Czech Interior Minister Milan Chovanec as saying all passengers were evacuated and would probably stay the night in Prague pending a thorough check of the plane.
