HONG KONG - A Hong Kong Airlines flight en-route to Hong Kong made an emergency landing in Wuhan, Hubei province after a bomb threat on Tuesday.

Flight HX337 had earlier taken off from Beijing at 12:14pm and was expected to arrive in Hong Kong at 15:45pm.

It was forced to land at Wuhan Tianhe International Airport at around 2:30pm after the control tower reported a possible bomb on board.

All 295 passengers and crew members on board were evacuated as police conducted a search on the plane.

Police later found no explosives after checking the plane thoroughly and are investigating the source of the false alarm.
