The Kuwait Ministry of Interior on Sunday said there was not a bomb aboard a Eurowings plane flying from Oman to Germany that conducted an emergency landing.
The plane carrying 287 passengers and 10 crew was flying from Oman's southern city of Salalah toward Cologne. The plane made an emergency landing at the Kuwait International Airport following suspicion there was a bomb aboard.
"The flight was diverted to Kuwait as a matter of precaution and in coordination with the relevant authorities and the pilot," Eurowings, a subsidiary of the Lufthansa Group, said in a statement.
Kuwait's Interior Ministry said security personnel at the airport thoroughly searched the plane while taking all necessary precautions, state-run news agency KUNA reported.
