Bordeaux Airport has been evacuated (Sunday afternoon 27th November) due to a bomb alert, details are sketchy but social media is showing pictures of intending air passengers standing outside the airport terminal.
No one has so far claimed responsibility.
Local authorities have been alerted, on site currently searching airport buildings and airport assets.
Intending travellers are requested to contact their airline before setting off for the airport.
Many incoming flights are being diverted to other airports, and departing flights cancelled, until the all-clear can be given and then delays and cancellations are expected for several days.
