Hot, hot, hot – Phuket Airport passengers complain about ‘hot’ terminal

Phuket International Airport officials have responded to a number of recent grievances about high temperatures within the airport’s international terminal. Sweaty passengers have taken their concerns to social media.

Yesterday, the airport administration responded…

“In response to the reported issue, it was discovered that one of the two chillers (compressors) within the airport had experienced a malfunction. This malfunction resulted in higher indoor temperatures, compounded by a refrigerant leak in the machine.”

The airport promptly reported the problem to their air conditioning service provider to sort out the problem. In the interim, 90 mobile air conditioning units were deployed within the terminal to alleviate any discomfort. As it was, the top temperature for Phuket yesterday was 30 degrees and the steel roof of the building heated up the air inside quickly.

No flights or services were delayed by the ‘hot’ airport.

The primary air conditioning system was back, up and running last night. The airport offered its apologies for any inconvenience caused to passengers who found themselves in a spontaneous sauna.
