Lyon Airport Evacuated

Fri Nov 11, 2005 10:48 pm

Just read this article on our (EZY) intranet. Apparently, the source is Adfero Ltd (?). Anybody have more information?

Saint Exupery Airport in Lyon, France, has been evacuated following a bomb alert.

All flights were suspended following a "bomb threat signal", according to Europa Press, a Spanish news agency.

At around 08:00 local time (07:00 GMT) the police in Lyon received an anonymous phone call regarding a bomb in the building of the airport.

All staff and passengers were evacuated and flights have been suspended until further notice.

In September this year the airport reported a 6.1 per cent increase in passenger numbers, the largest growth of any airport in France.

Over the first nine months of 2005 it handled a total of 5,094,064 passengers, a 5.7 per cent increase compared to the same period last year.

On a side note, when will LYS get back nonstop service to the USA?
