Authorities say a Lufthansa flight has been diverted to New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport due to a bomb threat.
Port Authority spokesman Steve Coleman says Lufthansa Flight 441 was heading from Houston, Texas, to Frankfurt, Germany, on Monday night when a threat was called in to the airline's corporate headquarters in Cologne, Germany.
Coleman says the pilot was notified and chose to divert to JFK as a precaution. The plane was taken to a remote area of the airport where 530 passengers and crew were evacuated.
Officials were searching the plane late Monday night.
The flight has been rescheduled.
Coleman says the incident has not impacted flight operations at JFK.
