A suspected bomb has been found at Warsaw’s Chopin airport, forcing the closure of the arrivals hall and diversion of passengers landing in the capital to the departures area.
The bomb was discovered at the construction site at terminal A, late on April 4. It is thought to be an unexploded second world war device. The site has been secured, and bomb disposal experts are now on the scene – but may not be able to make the area safe until April 5. Buses serving the affected area have also been diverted.
Airport authorities said passengers flying out should arrive at the airport in good time, and to expect ‘difficulties’ until at least Friday.
A spokesman for the airport said: “An object resembling a bomb from the second world war has been found on a construction site… at Terminal A at Chopin airport.”
He added: “We ask all passengers to follow information… and take into account possible difficulties in arrivals and departures.”
