Korean Air spokeswoman Penny Pfaelzer said Wednesday the 149 passengers are on their way to Vancouver, British Columbia's airport where the plane will be refueled before heading to Seoul.
Two U.S. F-15 fighter jets from Portland, Oregon, escorted the plane to Canada's Comox air base on Vancouver Island, 113 miles (182 kilometers) outside Vancouver on Tuesday.
The passengers and crew stayed overnight in the area while officials did a detailed search. The same Korean Airlines flight out of Vancouver faced a similar threat Monday and the all-clear was given after a two hour search.
