Air conditioning at a Canadian airport could soon be a thing of the past.
Air conditioning in the airport is now mandatory.
That means if you’re flying with a family of four, you need to buy a new, separate air conditioning unit.
That unit is now required to be a standard model.
“I have seen a lot of families in a situation where they’re having a big party and they’re sitting at the same table and they can’t have air conditioning,” said Air Canada spokeswoman Kristin Wiersema.
The company said it has no plans to replace its air conditioning systems, but will consider replacement options as a result.
“It’s an option that is available to us,” Wiersma said.
If the system breaks down, Wiershema said the airline will replace it and the new unit will be included in the bill.
It will also be mandatory for airline staff to wear an electronic hearing aid.
Air Canada says the hearing aid is a necessary safety measure.
The company is also planning to test the use of air conditioning in a new cabin to see how it works.
