She added: "Additional security checks are being carried out as a precaution".
A London-bound British Airways flight was evacuated at Paris's Charles de Gaulle airport on Sunday due to a security scare, but was later cleared for take-off, the airport's operator said.
British Airways while regretted for the inconvenience faced by the passengers, they emphasised that security of the passengers is their top priority.
"We would never operate a flight unless it is safe to do so".
A British Airways spokesperson confirmed that checks were underway.
British traveller James Anderson, 20, tweeted a snap of the plane and security services. Authorities are satisfied with the search.
According to express.co.uk, initially the pilot informed the passengers about a technical issue and said they had to move to the other part of the airport. The flight was scheduled to land at London Heathrow at 7:45 AM U.K. local time.
"Every single person and every single item of baggage was searched. Now hold luggage being searched by dogs". "Extremely calm and composed, handled the situation wonderfully".
He added: "Our pilot was an absolute credit to @British_Airways".
In the United Kingdom, the threat level was this week raised to "Critical" following the suspected terror attack at Parson's Green tube stop on London's District Line.
The threat level is now at the highest possible alert, meaning an attack is "expected imminently".
France has been one of the countries hardest hit by terror attacks in recent years, with 130 killed in the Paris attacks in November 2015, and 84 killed in the Nice attacks in July last year.
Passengers were evacuated from Flight BA303 at Charles de Gaulle airport before it was due to fly to London for what officials said was a security reason.
