Flight From Amsterdam to Detroit Met by Security

By  | 

ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities say a Delta flight from Amsterdam to Detroit was met by security after a passenger's medical device was reported as being suspicious.

Transportation Security Administration spokesman Jon Allen says the passenger was interviewed after the plane landed at Detroit Metropolitan Airport in Romulus on Saturday afternoon and was allowed to leave after telling agents about the device.

Airport spokesman Mike Conway said federal officials determined there was no threat.

The Associated Press paged a representative of Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines Inc. seeking comment.

The response follows a boost in airline and airports security after a Nigerian man allegedly tried to ignite a bomb on a Christmas Day flight to Detroit from Amsterdam.
