A Bahrain-bound Jet Airways flight from here was delayed by over two hours on Sunday following a bomb threat call received by the airlines' call centre.

Jet Airways flight 9W 592, which was to take off at 7-20 pm, was rescheduled after completion of all the necessary security checks, the company said in a statement here.

“Security forces have completed necessary checks and the Boeing 737 flight with 154 passengers and crew members has been rescheduled,” it said.

The anonymous threat call was a hoax, according to a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) source, who confirmed the development. “All the passengers are safe. We have carried out a thorough check of the aircraft. Efforts are also being made to trace the call,” a CISF spokesperson said.
