A leaking roof at the airport has forced the authorities to close down an aerobridge in the domestic terminal since Saturday.
A thunderstorm, followed by heavy showers, saw water dripping from the ceiling of the terminal. The “downpour” was particularly heavy on aerobridge No. 24, officials said.
Senior officials inspected the aerobridge around 10.30pm on Saturday. Rainwater was leaking from the roof of the terminal as well as the aerobridge.
“Water was leaking all over and the carpet was soaked. We had to place baggage tubs along the aerobridge. Passengers were skirting past the tubs on their way to board the aircraft,” an airport official said.
