STOCKHOLM, Sep. 25, 2010 (Xinhua News Agency) -- An jetliner on its way from Canada to Pakistan with 273 passengers on board made an emergency landing Saturday at Stockholm's Arlanda airport due to bomb threat, authorities said.

"The plane has landed," Stefan Nylen of the Alanda police told Swedish news agency TT.

"All airports have a special place for where you can allow a threatened plane to come down. We're blocking off and securing the area around the place so that emergency response teams can get there," said Nylen.

"We're waiting to make contact with the pilot inboard. At this point the air control officers in the tower have contact with the pilot," he added.

The jetliner's pilot alerted the air control officers at Arlanda that a person on board the flight was likely carrying explosives, according to the police.

"The police's bomb experts are on their way to Arlanda right now," Janne Hedlund of the Stockholm county police told TT.

Regular air traffic at Arlanda is unaffected by the threat, Arlanda spokesperson Anders Bredfell said, adding that terminals are open as usual and all remaining flights are leaving on schedule.

The plane, a Boeing (NYSE:BA) 777, was on its way from Toronto to Karachi, Pakistan. Local media said the aircraft belongs to Pakistan International Airways, but there has been no official confirmation on this.
