A Turkish Airlines flight TK608 from Nairobi to Istanbul was diverted after the detection of a wi-fi network called “bomb on board” that alarmed the passengers.
“Experts said the wi-fi network in question was created on board. No irregularities were seen after security procedures were carried out, and passengers were brought back on the plane once boarding restarted,”
Individuals can create personal wi-fi networks on devises such as mobile phones and name them what they want.
All 100 passengers were brought back on board the Boeing 737-800 (reg. TC-JVE), but did not say whether authorities had identified the passenger who had created the wi-fi network.
