Rome’s Ciampino Airport reopens after bomb threat21 November 2006
Rome’s second-largest airport, Ciampino, briefly closed early on Tuesday following an anonymous phone call claiming that a bomb was on board a cargo plane, airport officials said.
Inspections of aircraft found no evidence of a bomb and Ciampino was reopened about an hour later, officials said. Six flights had been rerouted east to the city of Pescara.
Ciampino Airport is primarily used by low-cost airlines, charter flights and private aircraft. It is also the closest to central Rome.
