Guam - It seems patrons of the Guam International Airport will have to deal with the warmer conditions in the facility's passenger gates, airline lounges and other areas of the main terminal's second floor for a few more months. The facility has been experiencing problems with its air conditioning system, and is in the process of doing an overhaul of the system.

GIAA executive manager Mary Torres says the airport fast tracked procurement of three new air handling units to cool these areas, but it won't arrive until march and furthermore will not be installed and in operation until May. "We do what we can and had to put in resources that we didn't anticipate putting in," she explained. "We're trying and sometimes you do you best and sometimes you best isn't enough but you do want you can all things considered in the facility."

She adds as an immediate relief, the airport installed four five-ton units to cool down the passenger screening lobby. Two additional ten-ton units will be installed to cool down the retail shops and food court area.
