A hijack threat call delayed the departure of a Jet Airways flight from here to Bangalore on Monday afternoon.

The Mumbai-Bangalore flight 2301 was delayed by over two hours after a call centre of the carrier received an anonymous call that the aircraft would be hijacked, Mumbai airport sources told PTI.

The call was received around 3:40 pm, 30 minutes before the scheduled departure of the flight with around 50 passengers and crew.

The aircraft was moved to a remote parking bay and checks were being carried out as per the standard operating procedure, the sources said.
