Airport police and federal officials were searching an EVA Air flight that landed at LAX Tuesday afternoon after a bomb threat was received targeting the airliner, authorities said.

After making a safe landing at LAX around 3:30 p.m., the airliner was taken to a secure area, video from the airport showed.

Passengers could be seen being escorted off the plane, which was parked in an isolated area.

The threat to the aircraft was made via telephone, according to FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller.

Another phoned-in bomb threat was also received Tuesday against a Cathay Pacific flight heading into LAX.

Both threats were determined to be not credible, Eimiller said.

Tuesday incidents came one day after 10 telephoned threats were made against U.S. bound flights on Memorial day.

All of those threats were determined to be false alarms.

"All threats, regardless of known credibility, are taken seriously," Eimiller said.
