SLASPA, in a press release, confirmed that the threat occurred, at about 5:50 a.m., adding that the matter has been turned over to the Criminal Investigations Department.

Director of Airports at SLASPA, Lambert Remy, said the organization is satisfied with the response to the threat.

“We are satisfied with the level of responsiveness from the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force, the Fire Service and all emergency personnel,” he stated.
