An unattended bag found near a Terminal D ticketing desk Wednesday at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport was not dangerous, airport officials say.
The bag was reported near the check-in area for Korean and Emirates airlines, in the south ticketing hall of the international terminal at about 10 a.m., according to travelers who spoke with NBC 5.
Passengers in the terminal told NBC 5 that security cleared everyone from the area and brought in dogs to investigate the bag.
Airport officials said shortly before noon that "the investigation of the unattended bag didn't reveal anything of concern."
"The situation in Terminal D is all clear and operations are returning to normal," airport officials said in a statement. "Customers have been allowed back into the south ticketing hall and all areas of Terminal D, and check-in and security checkpoint operations are resuming."
While the bag was investigated, the south hall and D18 security checkpoint were closed and travelers were diverted to security checkpoints at D22 and D30, which remained open and operational.
