Air India Mumbai-Newark flight makes emergency landing in London after bomb threat

An Air India flight to the US made an emergency landing in London this afternoon over a bomb threat. The flight — AI 191 service between Mumbai and Newark — has been taken to an isolated spot at the London Stansted Airport, according to the latest reports.

The flight had left Mumbai early today morning and was flying to the Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey, US.

The airport was briefly shut down during the Air India flight’s landing. The runway re-opened later and is now fully operational, the airport said in a statement.
