ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — An American Airlines flight from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport to New Mexico was evacuated Sunday after landing at the Albuquerque airport because of a security threat, authorities said.
All 179 people aboard Flight 928 from DFW were taken off the jet in the morning at Albuquerque International Sunport and were bused to the terminal, airport officials said. No injuries were reported.
FBI officials in Albuquerque did not disclose the nature of the security threat but said that the matter was being investigated and that no other information was available.
In a statement to WFAA, American Airlines said the threat was “later deemed non-credible.”
American Airlines passengers flying out of the airport were expected to see flight delays while the episode is investigated, airport officials said.
