On Monday August 24th, authorities at the Merida Airport confirmed that they received a threatening call stating there was an explosive device on an aircraft of Mexican carrier Interjet, specifically on their flight Mexico-Merida.
However, after a search operation conducted by specially trained officers of the Mexican Army, it was determined it was a false alarm. The plane, which returned to the Mexico City, was delayed just a few minutes.
The “bomb threat” circulated on social networks all day long, but fortunately none of the different versions was true.
The false “bomb threat” coincided with the visit of Minister of the Interior (Secretario de Gobernación) Miguel Angel Osorio Chong to the Yucatán. Osorio Chong came to Merida to preside a ceremony for the launch of the annual program known as “September month of the Will” (Septiembre Mes del Testamento); and also to attend the inauguration of the new headquarters of the State Congress of Yucatán.
In Mexico, as in any other part of the world, at the moment there is a threat of an explosive device in an international airport, even if false, a security protocol is activated and gives way to certain procedures, and that was exaclty how the situation was handled today at the “Manuel Crescencio Rejón” Merida International Airport.
