To the surprise of workers and, above all, travelers, this simulation was carried out, which ended shortly after 10:20 a.m., once army personnel removed the alleged device supported by Federal Police agents.
Although there was no official communication from the airport or military authorities, the simulation was described as successful, since actions such as this are carried out routinely, simulating different risk situations to keep officials trained and ready for real-life situations.
