A commercial flight of the Russian airline Aeroflot was evacuated and searched at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport following reports of a bomb threat, authorities said.

Officers evacuated Flight 102 from Moscow immediately after it landed around 3:46 p.m. Sunday, a representative from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) said.

Police finally cleared the plane at 10:03 pm, reporting that no bombs were found on board. The origin of the suspicion of the possible explosive was not reported.

Airport operations were not affected, but officials closed a trail during the investigation, and the departure flight back to Moscow was also delayed, reported NBC News.
