KUALA LUMPUR - Hundreds of air travellers were reportedly stranded at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) after a technical problem halted the aerotrain service there, reported local media.

The automated aerotrain ferries passengers between the main terminal building and a satellite building.

A spokesman for the airport operator Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad told the Malaysian Insider that the aerotrain service was halted for about an hour, and that the problem was fixed by about 3pm.

He added that buses were used to ferry passengers between terminals.
