WARSAW (Reuters) - The airport in Modlin on the outskirts of Poland’s capital Warsaw reopened after it was evacuated earlier on Wednesday due to a hoax bomb threat, the airport’s spokeswoman said.

Warsaw’s second passenger airport handles between 4,000 and 7,000 passengers daily, with low-cost airline Ryanair flights to London Stansted, Paris Beauvais and Brussels Charleroi, among others.
