A bomb threat delayed the departure of a Muscat-bound Oman Air flight from the Trivandrum International Airport by around 90 minutes on Tuesday night.

Airport officials said they received a bomb threat to the Thiruvanathapuram-Muscat flight scheduled to leave at around 8.30 pm, following which a detailed search was conducted.

However, nothing amiss was found and the flight left for its destination after a delay of about one and half hours, they said.
