    At the moment, there is no official information about how dangerous the bomb is. According to an airport spokesman, the bomb was discovered during construction work in the facility, and the emergency services are already at the scene and trying to secure it.

    An official statement has been published by the Berlin Airport Service, warning about a bomb at Schoenefeld Airport. The timetable suggests that some flights have been diverted from Schoenefeld due to the incident.
