NEW YORK — The Aeroflot flight that had departed from Moscow landed at JFK airport at around 3.50 pm EST. The aircraft had to apply emergency evacuation procedures on arrival due to a bomb threat.
According to the officials, there were 250 passengers on board.
“Due to an ongoing incident, emergency personnel and activity may be observed at #JFK airport,”
the airport account tweeted on Sunday.
