Aircraft Air Conditioning

Airplanes can spend a lot of time on the tarmac before they accept passengers. And the longer they wait, the less comfortable the air inside the cabin can get. Whether the weather is exceptionally hot or cold, it’s important to ensure that travelers are greeted by a pleasant cabin temperature without burning fuel to achieve it. For this reason, airports and carriers often turn to airport heating and cooling systems as a crucial component of their ground support equipment (GSE). With these mobile units at their disposal, they can control the cabin climate of their planes, no matter how extreme the weather is.

When it comes to sourcing airport heating and air units, Xcēd can provide you with virtually any system you need with an exceptional degree of flexibility and the most competitive terms in the industry. We give you the ability to source GSE in the way that makes the most sense for your operations.

How These Units Work

Airport air conditioning systems typically are driven or towed onto the tarmac to service waiting aircraft. Depending on the circumstances, they generate warm or cool air that is pumped into the cabin through large, flexible conduits. Without these systems, the interior of an aircraft can become uncomfortably hot or cold if it is left outside for long. Relying on the plane’s onboard HVAC system while on the ground would result in a waste of fuel, so airport air conditioning equipment serves that function instead.

Because the weather and the level of activity at an airport can change significantly in a short period of time, it doesn’t always make sense to maintain an inventory of airport heating and cooling equipment on-site. However, it’s imperative that operators know they can have the most reliable equipment ready to go when they need it.
