    After returning to the French capital, the plane underwent a special examination in order to rule out the terror threat.

    "Air China has received a suspected terrorist message. Flight CA876 has returned to Paris safely, with the plane and its passengers all unharmed," the airline said on its official Weibo account.

    Charles de Gaulle Airport confirmed the incident to Sputnik, though has not provided any details.

    "I can confirm that the plane you are talking about really returned to Paris. Moreover, it has already landed. I cannot reveal the cause of the incident," the airport's press service told Sputnik.

    Air China has said it will accommodate all of its passengers, and after the airline is given the green light, the plane will take off for its destination.
