The security service of the Ercan International Airport are on alert due to the threat of the explosions.
According to local media, On Sunday at 22:45 the flight of Pegasus Airlines arrived from Istanbul and right after landing, three passengers have declared that they have bombs.
The cabin crew immediately informed the civil aviation and airport authorities.
Police arrived to the aircraft and arrested those three passengers before the other passengers left the aircraft.
