Flight Makes Emergency Landing Due to WiFi Network Name

by Adam

A Turkish Airlines flight from Istanbul (IST) to Nairobi (NBO) was forced to make an emergency landing at Khartoum International Airport (KRT) in Sudan this week after passengers began freaking out after detecting a WiFi network aboard the plane with the name “Bomb on Board”.

Upon landing, the plane, all passengers and luggage were inspected by security.  Once the all clear was given, passengers were re-boarded and the 737-800 flight carried on safely to Nairobi.

Turkish Airlines released this statement:

“Experts said the Wi-Fi network in question was created on board. No irregularities were seen after security procedures were carried out, and passengers were brought back on the plane once boarding restarted.”
