04/13/2015 (Germany) – Media reports indicated that a bomb scare forced a Germanwings aircraft to abort its take-off procedures at the Cologne Airport (CGN) on Sunday evening, 12 April. The alert concerned an Airbus A320 aircraft which had 132 passengers. Flight 4U826 was scheduled to depart CGN for Milan Malpensa (MXP) airport at 1820hrs (1620hrs UTC) but was cancelled due to the alert. Passengers were rescheduled on later flights. Information concerning the incident remains sparse as local security forces have not yet issued an official statement.

The aforementioned incident is unlikely to have any direct effect on flight schedules from CGN on Monday, 13 April. However, it underscores the need for travellers and personnel with operations involving air travel to closely abide by all directives issued by local security forces. In the event of further bomb alerts in German airports, clients should expect the prompt intervention of police and security service as well as the temporary disruption of flights from the affected airport.
