Rome’s Ciampino Airport reopens after bomb threat

21 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.
