Singapore – A few days after Jewel Changi Airport’s Rain Vortex wowed locals and tourists alike, the world’s best airport had another kind of surprise in store for its audience: a leaky ceiling and flooded floors.

Videos were posted online on April 13 which showed a ceiling from one of the airport’s corridors leaking water. A few moments later, the trickle turned into a strong and steady stream of water much to the chagrin of nearby bystanders.

Some even stopped to take photos of the occurrence.

Meanwhile, in another video, four staff were seen mopping a flooded area of the airport’s Terminal 1 Arrival Hall.

According to a spokesperson from Jewel Changi Airport Development, the water leaks were caused by a sprinkler issue.

In a statement on Sunday, the spokesperson said, “There was a sprinkler issue in Jewel yesterday afternoon which caused water leakage in the Terminal 1 Arrival Hall. An unoccupied tenant unit in Jewel was also affected.”

“The issue was quickly attended to and resolved with minimal impact to operations,” she added.

A certain Patrick Tan shared the other video with the following caption, “Not my video. Circulating in WhatsApp. Not sure how true is it since I never been there before. But caption shows that this is happening in our 1.7 billion jewel at Changi Airport which started 2 days only…”
