ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Faulty directions from Apple's maps app that guide drivers to the edge of a runway instead of a terminal at an Alaskan airport have been reactivated, causing worry for transportation officials.
Fairbanks International Airport officials say that Apple had notified them the directions were disabled. But officials noticed the directions were reactivated on Friday and had one person intentionally follow them, which presents a dangerous situation for pilots and drivers.
Previously, officials say drivers on two different occasions had followed the directions continued on and cut across an active runway to reach the terminal.
Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple didn't immediately return a message to The Associated Press on Friday evening.
On Friday, Alaska transportation officials sent out a warning to pilots that the faulty directions were back on.
