AMSTERDAM (REUTERS) - KLM flight KL1376 from Bucharest to Amsterdam was evacuated before departure on Saturday (Oct 3) following a bomb threat, which later appeared to have been a false alarm, a spokeswoman for the Dutch airline said.

All passengers and crew left the plane safely, after which local authorities searched it without finding any explosives on board, spokeswoman Gerrie Brand told Reuters.

The flight to Amsterdam will now leave on Sunday, Brand added.
