A spokeswoman with the Bathurst Regional Airport said crew discovered the package was dented while being unloaded from an Air Canada flight Sunday at around 4 p.m.

Katherine Lanteigne says the airport went into lockdown and one departing flight was delayed, but it reopened about four hours later and after a police hazmat team determined the package was not ruptured.
