WARMER temperatures continue this month at the A.B. Won Pat International Airport as it moves forward in its efforts to upgrade the air-conditioning system to improve its facilities.
The upgrade project began yesterday and will continue over the next three weeks.
“The airport is implementing its Energy Performance Management Contract that includes an overhaul and upgrade of the airport’s air-conditioning system,” the Guam International Airport Authority stated in a press release. “The project will proceed in phases with inefficient air-handling units replacement beginning May 3 through 23.”
GIAA warns that specific areas may be affected with warmer temperatures during the air-conditioning upgrade project.
Those areas include the TSA Pre-screening lobby, retail boutiques and food outlets located on the concourse, certain tenant offices, and the West Ticket Lobby.
Even before the upgrades began, GIAA already installed package units to service areas of the terminal where air-handling units are being replaced. They are also mitigating the heat by placing portable air-conditioning units and fans in affected areas.
