SINGAPORE (Reuters) - All passengers and crew on board a Scoot flight to Thailand that turned around and returned to Singapore on Thursday after a bomb threat disembarked safely, police said.
“The passenger who allegedly made the bomb threat and his two other travel companions are currently assisting police further with investigations,” police said in a Facebook post.
Two Singapore fighter jets escorted the civilian plane back to the city-state.
Scoot is a Singapore Airlines budget carrier.
