YOGYAKARTA--MI: Pesawat Air Asia dengan nomor penerbangan QZ 7341 yang telah bersiap di ujung landasan Bandara Adisutjipto Yogyakarta, Senin (2/3) sekitar pukul 07.30 WIB batal terbang karena mengalami masalah pada pump presure.

Menurut karyawan Air Asia yang tidak bersedia disebutkan namanya, masalah pada pump pressure itu mengakibatkan roda depan tidak dapat dibelokkan, selanjutnya pesawat tersebut ditarik ke apron.

Akibat kejadian tersebut diputuskan untuk membatalkan penerbangan pesawat dengan jurusan Jakarta tersebut, katanya.

Ia mengatakan sampai saat ini pesawat belum berhasil diperbaiki sehingga penumpang yang berjumlah 148 harus dialihkan ke penerbangan selanjutnya. Tetapi yang menjadi masalah adalah pesawat yang sore nanti juga penuh sehingga sulit untuk mengalihkan penumpang, katanya.

Sementara itu Asisten Manajer Pelayanan PT Angkasa Pura I Cabang Bandara Adisutjipto Yogyakarta Hanad Prayitno mengatakan pihaknya belum menerima informasi tentang kerusakan pesawat tersebut.

Kami masih rapat dan belum ada laporan resmi menyangkut kerusakan yang dialami pesawat Air Asia, ujarnya. (Ant/OL-01)
