A flight operated by Lufthansa's budget unit Eurowings travelling from Salalah in Oman to Cologne, Germany made an emergency landing in Kuwait after a bomb scare on Sunday, Kuwait's Civil Aviation Authority said, adding that authorities were investigating.

"(The flight) made an emergency landing at Kuwait International Airport because of suspicion that there might be a bomb on board ... preliminary investigations are being carried out to determine if the aircraft is free of explosives," a statement published on state news agency KUNA said.

A Lufthansa spokesperson said there was no evidence that a bomb was on board a plane operated by its budget unit. There were 287 passengers and 10 crew on board. Passengers would be flown to Germany from Kuwait, the spokesman said.
