Wi-fi hotspot named “Bomb on Board” forces Turkish Airlines flight to divert

by Neha Monga

Close to 100 passengers flying on Turkish Airlines flight, had the scariest flight of their life when their flight was diverted after the detection of a wi-fi network called “bomb on board.”

According to Reuters, a plane headed from Nairobi, Kenya, to Istanbul, Turkey, made an emergency landing in Sudan on Thursday after airline staff were alerted to a wi-fi network named “bomb on board.” The plane landed safely at the Khartoum airport and an investigation found there was no threat.

The flight was safely resumed after security inspections on all passengers and the aircraft. “Experts said the wi-fi network in question was created on board. No irregularities were seen after security procedures were carried out, and passengers were brought back on the plane once boarding restarted,” Turkish Airlines said in a statement.
