One in custody after 'possible security threat' aboard Denver-bound plane

One person was taken into custody at Denver International Airport after a “possible security threat” on a flight from Knoxville, Tenn. on Friday night, an airport spokeswoman said.

Denver Police and the FBI responded after Frontier Airlines flight 601 landed safely at about 7:30 p.m. local time, airport spokeswoman Laura Coale said in a recorded message.

The plane was moved to a remote location, and passengers were taken off the plane and bussed to another section of the airport, she said.

A bomb squad also responded to the scene after one person was taken from the aircraft by law enforcement. The area was cleared around 11:30 p.m., Coale said. She did not provide any other details on the nature of the possible threat.

While law enforcement responded to the possible threat, “all other airport operations remained normal,” Coale said.
