SEATAC, Wash. (AP) - Two planes have been evacuated on arrival at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport due to what a spokesman called a "security concern."
Airport spokesman Perry Cooper says a JetBlue flight from Long Beach, California, and a regional Skywest jet from Phoenix were the planes involved. The flights arrived late Sunday afternoon.
Cooper said that out of an abundance of caution, passengers were evacuated on or near the airport's third runway and then bused to their gates.
He said the matter was under investigation and he did not have further details.
