The Queenstown Airport in New Zealand was evacuated on Sunday morning after a note mentioning a bomb was found on board.

The New Zealand Police who are sweeping through the airport in New Zealand have said they have found no sign of any explosives so far, after ?a cleaner found the message on the Qantas flight just before 3pm.

No passengers were on board at the time, reports the Teams are, however, continuing the search operation.

A passenger said, "(They) have been slowly moving us back, my guess is because of protocol but there are fire trucks on the Tarmac pointed at the plane. The mood is muted."
