The jets, two operated by Latam Airlines and two by the budget carrier Sky, touched down safely before undergoing security checks.

The Chilean Civil Aviation Authority said the threats were made by an anonymous phone call and appeared to be false.

A Latam jet scheduled to depart Peru’s capital Lima for Santiago, Chile, with 83 on board diverted to Pisco airport in Peru. Another, from Mendoza in Argentina to Santiago, was grounded.

Two planes operated by Chile-based Sky Airlines bound for Rosario, Argentina, and the northern Chilean city of Calama returned to Santiago without incident.
