  • British Airways plane held tarmac Paris terror London attack police threat

After searching the flight and its passengers, police said the alert was a false alarm.

BA303, an Airbus 320, was due to take off Sunday from Charles de Gaulle Airport at 7:25 a.m. (1:25 a.m. ET) for London's Heathrow airport when passengers were deplaned.

A spokesman for Charles de Gaulle airport said the search was instigated by customs officials and was routine.

It was followed by the pilot announcing they had to evacuate on account of a "direct threat" involving the flight specifically.

All passengers were later given the all clear and British Airways has informed them they will be able to travel on a replacement flight later on Sunday. We will all be led off the aircraft and baggage searched in due course.

Passengers waited on the tarmac near Terminal 2 as security personnel and sniffer dogs searched bags and aircraft.

According to British Airways: 'The safety and security of our customers and crew is always our top priority.

Around three hours after its scheduled departure, at 11.10am, a BA spokeswoman confirmed the flight had taken off. "We would never operate a flight unless it is safe to do so".

This "threat" comes amid the explosion in the London Tube on Friday which injured over dozen people.
