A bomb threat on a plane preparing to leave Faro airport in Portugal's southern region of Algarve for Lisbon forced the evacuation of 38 passengers early on Tuesday, a spokesman for TAP said.

"There was a bomb threat and the plane was handed over to the authorities for inspection. The passengers have been removed," he said, declining to provide details on how the threat had been delivered.

The flight had been due to take off at 6:05 am local time.

The airport in the region popular with tourists was put on the second-highest "orange" alert, but the flight timetable showed no further delays for arrivals or departures.
