Security breach at Cologne airport shuts down terminals

Mar 01, 2016

According to reports, a woman went through security at Cologne Airport without being checked, prompting an evacuation and shut down of Terminal 1 and 2.

Ryanair passengers were told to leave their flight.

Police were seen via an airport webcam on the tarmac as a police helicopter flew overhead.

The terminals reopened approximately an hour after being evacuated. Some flights understandably had to be delayed.
