The Warsaw fire service deployed 13 units stationed near Warsaw–Modlin Mazovia international airport,
The plane was carrying approximately 160 passengers, all have deplaned safely and bomb squad officers are combing the Ryanair aircraft which is parked at a remote location inside the airport.
A statement from Ryanair in Dublin stated: “Warsaw Modlin Airport received an anonymous call that there was an explosive device on a Ryanair aircraft due to take off from Modlin to Oslo at 08.40hrs local.
"The airport security authorities ordered an immediate inspection of the aircraft (which hadn’t yet boarded) and closed the airport to inbound arrivals as a security precaution.
"Warsaw Modlin believes this is a hoax call and expect the security sweep to confirm this fact. They expect to release the aircraft and reopen the airport shortly.
