    UPDATE: Flights delayed at Dulles Airport after bomb threat

    The Washington Metropolitan Airports Authority on Tuesday temporarily shut down parking garages at Dulles International Airport after a bomb threat, according MWAA officials.

    Rob Yingling, spokesman for MWAA, said flights were delayed in and out of the airport for about 30 minutes.

    Flights, however, were not evacuated, according to MWAA’s Twitter account. 

    By 11 p.m. parking facilities at Dulles were open and operating normally.

    Yingling could not confirm how officials found out about the threat, but said parking garages one and two were shut down while police conducted an investigation using canine teams.

    “Nothing was found in any of our facilities as a result of the investigation,” he said.

    He said there were some reports of airline workers who were delayed in getting to their positions to help with arriving flights.

    Planes were able to land, but were delayed in pulling into the gates, Yingling said. None of the airport’s terminals were closed during the incident.

    No injuries were reported.
