SAN ANTONIO -- The San Antonio International Airport has been evacuated and re-mains closed to traffic, as bomb-detection K-9s and law-enforcement personnel are searching the parking areas. This is after the airport complex was evacuated this afternoon after the administration office received a bomb threat, according to airport spokesman Rich Johnson.

Between 2-2:30 p.m., Johnson said several telephone calls detailing specific threats were received by the office. The caller identified a quantity of devices that were purported to have been left inside the terminal building and parking garage, which prompted an evacuation of the airport that began at 2:35 p.m.

Aircraft were pushed back from the terminal building and inbound flights were forced to land and park on tarmacs as officers and their service dogs began searching for the devices. The terminal building was cleared at approximately 4:15 p.m., John-son said and passengers were allowed to come in. He expects the parking garages to be cleared by 5:30 p.m.

It is yet unknown from where the telephone calls originated, Johnson said.
