A United Airlines aircraft was diverted to San Francisco on Monday evening owing to a “potential security issue,” according to an airline representative.
United Flight 1909, which had taken off from Los Angeles, arrived safely at SFO at 9:30 p.m., according to an SFO duty manager.
“The plane touched down safely and was met by local law enforcement.” “We’re working hard to get our customers to their final destination as soon as possible,” added United.
According to officials, the threat came from within the plane when it was flying over Northern California. According to the duty manager, the event ended with the threat being found not credible.
According to United, there were 148 passengers and eight crew members on board. The airline stated that the flight was met by local law authorities upon arrival, but no one was detained.
According to internet flight monitors, Flight 1909 took off from SFO for Vancouver at 7:06 a.m. Tuesday.
