Passengers were moved to the first floor of the airport at about 10:00 a.m. on Monday, while the Regina Police Service investigated.
“It was clear that we needed to move people away,” said President and CEO of Regina Airport Authority, Dick Graham. “We moved them away from the area, — fully assessed it.”
The Regina Police Service used its bomb squad to make sure that the package was removed safely from the building.
“It was treated as though it was a significant threat,” said Graham.
Police have the suspect in custody.
Graham says there may still be some delays, and some flights have had to be rescheduled.
