PUTRAJAYA – The aerotrain service at the KL International Airport has been shut down temporarily due to emergency maintenance works, Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) said in a post on its official Facebook page.
It said the bus service was activated immediately to address the situation, with 16 buses ferrying passengers between the main terminal and satellite buildings.
“KLIA handled a high volume of passenger movement from 8am to 8pm today (Dec 24), whereby the trains had ferried about 95,000 passengers during the period.
“Due to the heavy usage, the trains were withdrawn for emergency maintenance in order to ensure the parts are serviced for continued operation,” said MAHB.
It had been reported earlier that the aerotrain service at KLIA was down again, causing a delay in travel as hundreds of passengers waited for buses to transport them. This is the third time a breakdown has occurred this year.
