AC still out at Honolulu International

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - For a third day the air-conditioning system at Honolulu International Airport is not working.

Crews Wednesday afternoon feverishly worked to remove and replace a broken section of air conditioning pipe that carries chilled water throughout the Honolulu International Airport's central concourse.

"This is a very old system. This is a very old airport. It's over 30 years old," state Dept. of Transportation spokesman Dan Meisenzahl said.

The state has set up electric fans and portable air-conditioning units around the airport.

The state hopes no other leaks will spring up when the system is turned back on. Meisenzahl said that should be sometime Thursday.
