In late July 2015, an application for minor enhancements to Air, including changes to its station as well as the addition of two theming features and a photo-opportunity kiosk, was submitted to Staffordshire Moorlands District Council. More specifically, the plans showed the station area would be enclosed, with the addition of a pre-show on both sides.

Contrary to what the plans showed, the large theming feature, revealed to be a portal, which was proposed to surround the lift hill was instead constructed at the bottom of the first drop, while the smaller theming feature, which turned out to be a sign, was moved near to Galactica Shop and the Rollercoaster Restaurant.
