LAHORE – A Pakistan International Airlines flight from Lahore to Heathrow was escorted by RAF Typhoons and was made to land at Stansted as there were reports of suspicious passenger onboard, on Tuesday evening.
Two RAF jets were scrambled to intercept flight PK757 after unconfirmed reports of a security threat.
According to the Essex Police, the diversion was made due to reports of a disruptive passenger on board and was ‘not believed to be a hijack situation or terror matter’.
