TypeError: Ajv is not a constructor

I have this class where I try to instantiate Ajv with the new keyword and I get this error:

TypeError: Ajv is not a constructor

Code:

import * as Ajv from "ajv";

    export class ValidateJsonService {
        validateJson(json, schema) {
            console.log(Ajv);
            let ajv = new Ajv({ allErrors: true });
            if (!ajv.validate(schema, json)) {
                throw new Error("JSON does not conform to schema: " + ajv.errorsText())
            }
        }
    }

The console log:

This code used to be working and it is how Ajv is used. From the Ajv docs:

The fastest validation call:

var Ajv = require('ajv');
var ajv = new Ajv(); // options can be passed, e.g. {allErrors: true}
var validate = ajv.compile(schema);
var valid = validate(data);
if (!valid) console.log(validate.errors);

How come I'm getting this error?

See the bottom of this for how I import the Ajv library - systemjs.config.js:

(function (global) {
    System.config({
        paths: {
            // paths serve as alias
            'npm:': 'lib/js/'
        },
        // map tells the System loader where to look for things
        map: {
            app: 'app', 
            // angular bundles
            '@angular/core': 'npm:@angular/core/bundles/core.umd.js',

I saw that Ajv has a default function so I changed my code to this:

let ajv = new Ajv.default({ allErrors: true });

Not 100% sure what is going on there but it works.
