Management at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport has clarified reports regarding recent technical issues at Terminal 2D.

Agus Haryadi, the head of the corporate and legal division at state-owned airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II, said an elevator at the terminal malfunctioned because of a faulty gearbox.

“The elevator didn’t fall or collapse like what has been reported by online media,” Agus said.
