The Region of Waterloo International Airport remains on lockdown after police arrested one man following a bomb threat on a Flair Airlines plane headed from Ontario to Vancouver on Monday afternoon.

Waterloo Regional Police said the incident happened at about 2 p.m. ET at the airport east of Kitchener.

"A passenger reported to staff that another passenger threatened that he had a bomb on the plane," a police spokesperson said in a release.

Officers from the explosives disposal unit were still at the airport as of 5 p.m., investigating whether an incendiary device was on the plane.

The public is being asked to avoid the airport.

Not to be insensitive but was the passenger really mad about their experience with Flair for some reason? Why would he tell his co passenger?

I would have suspected a man named Napoleon, but this is a different place and time.
