SEPANG: An aerobridge collapsed at a stretch between the Kuala Lumpur Internatio­nal Airport terminal and the satellite building during regular maintenance work.

No one was injured while flights were not affected by the 6pm incident yesterday, said Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAB) senior general manager for operations Datuk Azmi Murad.

“We are investigating the incident,” Azmi said, adding that the aerobridge at gate A2 had been closed for maintenance work to be carried out, which started at 3pm.

Azmi said the incident happened during the replacement of the aerobridge’s tunnel roller.

“There will be no shortage of parking bays for the airlines due to the temporary closure of gate A2,” he added.
