You may wonder why it is always cold when you are traveling in an airplane. There are several factors as to why it is so cold inside an airplane, one being for comfort as there are several people that are sitting next to each other, which generates a lot of heat.

The second is that turbulence and warm air don’t mix together well, which results in a bumpy ride, and that is something that no one enjoys while flying. The last one being that it keeps passengers from passing out from hypoxia and keeps all of the emergency equipment at the perfect temperature.
