Flight AF83 SFO-CDG was diverted to Montreal (Trudeau Airport) and landed safely around 12:25 a.m. ET following the threat.

The flight was operated with a Boeing 777, with approximately 200 passengers on board, Air France KLM said.

The airline declined to elaborate further on the nature of the threat. Local authorities checked all passengers, luggage, as well as the aircraft.
