Four airports in France were evacuated again on Thursday after reports of explosive devices being found there.

We are talking about the airports of Montpellier, Nantes, Bordeaux and Lille.

The prefecture of the Hérault department reported to X that the Montpellier airport has been evacuated, and a team of sappers is working on the site. About 300 passengers were evacuated from Lille airport in the north of the country. All flights are directed to other airports.

The Bordeaux airport terminal administration also announced on social networks a new evacuation of citizens from the building due to reports of a bomb. The prefecture of Nantes confirmed the evacuation of the city’s airport.


The day before, passengers were evacuated from the airports of Lille, Toulouse, Nice, Nantes and Beauvaux airports near Paris and Lyon-Bron near Lyon due to reports of mining or suspicious objects. Media later reported that the number of French airports evacuated on Wednesday due to bomb threats or suspicious objects had risen to fourteen, including airports in Strasbourg, Bordeaux, Biarritz, Rennes, Carcassonne, Brest, as well as airports in the southwest of the country Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrénées and Pau-Pyrénées.


In France, reports of bombs and threats of terrorist attacks have recently become more frequent. Visitors to Versailles have already been evacuated three times in the last week. Earlier, the Louvre Museum in Paris closed its doors to visitors “for security reasons.”

French media later reported that the cause was a bomb threat following reports of a bomb, which led to the evacuation of 3,000 visitors.


The incidents come after France was placed at its highest terror alert level following an attack at a school in Arras that left a teacher dead.
