NEWARK, N.J. (AP) – A canine unit has found nothing suspicious during a sweep of a London-to-Newark, New Jersey, flight after authorities received an unspecified threat.

The British Airways flight carrying 206 passengers and 13 crew members arrived Thursday afternoon at Newark Liberty International Airport.

A Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police spokesman says the crew is off the plane and passengers’ bags are being re-screened.

The plane was moved to a remote area of the airport after it landed.

British Airways PLC is based in Hounslow, England, and is owned by Consolidated Airlines Group S.A. It says the safety of its passengers and crew is its top priority.
