Earlier, officials said they had received a credible bomb threat, leading to military jets escorting two flights to Atlanta. Both landed safely at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in the late afternoon.

The flights were identified as Delta 1156, from Portland, Ore., and Southwest 2492, from Milwaukee.
