WestJet flight 142 from Vancouver to Ottawa was diverted to Thunder Bay, Ont., Wednesday night after RCMP received information about a "possible explosive" on board, Thunder Bay police say.
WestJet said the plane landed safely in Thunder Bay, and that authorities deemed the threat "non-specific and non-credible."
The Boeing 737 plane left Vancouver at 4:25 p.m. PT and landed in Thunder Bay about three hours later, sometime between 10:30 and 11 p.m. ET, according to police and the flight-tracking website FlightAware.
Upon landing, the plane was parked in a secure area of the Thunder Bay airport. All 125 passengers and crew members were safely escorted off the plane, which will be searched Thursday, police said.
